If you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) – a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of smell or taste (anosmia) – the advice is to stay at home for seven days. All members of this household should remain at home for 14 days.

If you think you have symptoms, please do not attend your hospital appointment until you are advised it is safe to do so. Please contact us to rearrange your appointment, or to re-organise treatment and tests.

In-Situ Simulation

Simulation is a well-recognised modality of healthcare education. The ability to imitate the healthcare system in a safe environment provides effective education with positive learning outcomes for individuals and teams.

TSCSC delivers both in-centre and in-situation simulation. In-situ simulation not only enhances learning through active experimentation in the real-world, but also allows assessment to enhance system quality. In-situ simulation can identify inhibitory factors on processes and staff, and the positive factors that support resilience. 

TSCSC has experience using in-situ simulation to:

  • Identify latent threats to improve safety
  • Evaluate the emergency response of teams
  • Develop teams in their own environments
  • Evaluate new clinical environments and procedures
  • Test and develop clinical policies and guidelines
  • Train trauma teams

The team uses a standardised approach to developing in-situ simulations, including the use of bespoke models for latent threat analysis in healthcare.
