Who are we?


SCROLL DOWN

Who are we?


We are responsible for the distribution of educational media for health care practitioners in Emergency Medicine (EM) across the East Midlands.

Based at University Hospitals of Leicester, we also provide support for other hospitals within the region – including: Nottingham, Derby, Northampton, Lincoln, Chesterfield, Kettering and King's Mill.

Our current course curriculum and e-Learning platform (Moodle) can be found here.

We also offer an Out Of Programme Experience (OOPE) in Medical Education for Higher Trainees In Emergency Medicine. This includes funding for a Post Graduate Certificate in Medical Education.


Take a sneak peek at our new Emergency Floor which is set to open to patients in summer 2017.

Flipping The Classroom

Flipping The Classroom


The courses on the website are based a flipped classroom model, they contain a number of FOAMed resources mapped to the curriculum. Our trainees complete these before attending local teaching. However if you are visiting from outside the East Midlands you are still welcome to make use of the online components!

We also use interactive Wiki Cases to consolidate learning and give context to information gained from the tasks.

We have presented these concepts as Posters at several conferences including:

  • The Royal College of Emergency Medicine's Annual Scientific Conference 2014

  • The Emergency Medicine Educators Conference 2015 (EMEC)

Paediatric Emergency Medicine


Curriculum Linked Subspeciality Resources

Subspecialty in Paediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) has its own curriculum, alongside offering Out of Programme opportunities to train in PEM, we have mapped a range of FOAMed Material to the curriculum. This will help all trainees access a range of media to further their professional development.

We have adopted the following format for the PEM course:

  • STOP – an opportunity to review the curriculum

  • LOOK – FOAMed resources to look at.

  • LISTEN – a collection of audio/podcasts.

  • GO – face to face teaching sessions consolidating learning.

With the exception of the face to face sessions all the above is freely available to access via the PEM Course (modules will be released throughout the year).

Simulation Programme

Simulation Programme


We run weekly real-time in situ simulations with all members of the ED team, for both paediatric and adult cases. Keep an eye out for MDT sims when we are joined by other teams from within the Trust.

On top of this we also run several simulation days in a Sim Lab. This year we are running several Event Sims involving teams outside the ED as well.

We also entered the winning team for the SIMSTARs competition at RCEM15.

Summaries of our cases and learning points from our Sims can be found below as well as the occasional reflection on the technical side of running simulations In Situ.

Check back regularly for more updates!
