Simulation and skills professionalisms

As a necessary part of the teaching within your programme, you will be required to participate in a range of simulated practice scenarios.

Participation in patient simulation activities is not compulsory and students/service users have the right to opt out at any time with a valid reason – not partaking in these simulations may be detriment to your progression if you are unable to demonstrate an aspect of practice

Simulation and skills guidelines
There are a number of guidelines you are expected to follow by enrolling on to your programme.

Consent to video and/or photograph participants of simulated practice

24- hour Video recording takes place within the Simulation and Skills Education Centre and is used as part of the simulation-based education experience. At times photography or video may be taken and downloaded for educational or promotional purposes to highlight examples of good practice. The photographs and videos remain the property of Edge Hill University and permission will be sought from the participants to further reproduce photographs or video to be used for teaching or marketing purposes in the future. If you do not wish to have your photograph or video used please contact your programme lead.

Fitness for training

In order to undertake the practical aspects of the simulation sessions, you will need to be able to carry out a range of movements, adopt variable postures and move/transfer loads.
