Simulation Provider Certificate

The Simulation Provider Certificate is the GOSH faculty development programme for simulation facilitators. This certificate has been developed to provide a training pathway for individuals who are involved in the delivery of Simulation Based Education within and beyond Great Ormond Street Hospital.

This is a comprehensive and interactive programme covering key aspects of simulation education, mainly focusing on faculty development. Candidates will be exposed to the innovative use of simulation for education and healthcare transformation.
The programme provides a blend of theoretical basis and practical simulation applications in training and education. We cover a broad range of activities including debrief and facilitation theory, human factors engineering, scenario writing skills, the opportunity to be observers and facilitators in simulation courses, the use of simulation technology, and opportunities for reflection and individualised feedback.

Learning Outcomes:
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
  1. Clarify the role and responsibilities of a successful simulation facilitator
  2. Apply adult learning theories to practice in simulation based education 
  3. Identify implicit and explicit strategies to create and maintain psychological safety during simulation-based events 
  4. Describe different modalities available for simulation-based education
  5. Design and deliver clinical simulation scenarios with appropriate objectives
  6. Understand the applications, abilities and limitations of simulation technology
  7. Demonstrate effective pre-briefing prior to simulations 
  8. Demonstrate effective facilitation of simulation scenarios 
  9. Demonstrate the ability to co-facilitate debriefs safely and effectively
  10. Demonstrate the ability to lead debriefs safely and effectively 

Course expectations:
By joining this course, you are committing to completing the full Simulation Provider pathway. In return, the CSC team commit to supporting you to progress through this pathway at your pace. To help you advance through the certificate, we will signpost you to simulation opportunities where you can work alongside the team to scaffold the knowledge and skills developed on this pathway. 

Course structure:
The Simulation Provider pathway begins with two core days followed by flexible sessions which are booked directly with the CSC team. The information below outlines the format of the individual sessions offered on this pathway.
