Option one - Simulation Centre
Start time: 08:45am.
The Simulation Centre at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital is a high-fidelity patient simulation facility used to train medical students and clinical staff. There is a particular focus on understanding human factors such as communication, delegation, prioritisation and team work.
Designated simulation and seminar rooms are linked through a high-tech AV system allowing observers to see scenarios play out using the range of adult, paediatric and neonatal manikins.
The team of clinical trainers have designed a bespoke interactive programme for Barema members:
- Introduction to the use of simulation in medicine
- Workshop on airway management
- A session on 'Human Factors' and 'Crisis management', based on 1-2 full scenarios and accompanying discussion
Please note that places for this option are limited to 25.
Active Barema members will have priority over non-members.
Places will be allocated to members on a first come first served basis, with a maximum of three people from each member company.
If over-subscribed, a waiting list will be put into operation based on the same principles.
Option two - Wellcome 'Medicine Man'
Start time: 10:15am.
Born in 1853, Henry Wellcome created one of the world's great museums: a vast stockpile of objects - five times greater than the Louvre - about our universal interest in health and the body across time and geography.
Amongst the extraordinary curiosities on display in 'Medicine Man' are diagnostic dolls, Japanese sex aids, Napoleon's toothbrush and Florence Nightingale's slippers, as well as numerous medical instruments from the past that make you glad to live in the days of modern medicine.
Delegates choosing this option will have a private tour of the exhibit by one of the experts at the Wellcome Trust. Afterwards, there will be free time to explore the rest of 'Medicine Man' plus the current exhibition at the Wellcome Collection, 'First Time Out'.
