Practice Makes Perfect...

About the Day

Once again the PEST team will be running a series of Paediatric Simulations and some particular sessions on Human Factors. The scenarios will cover a range of presentations and ages relevant to Paediatric Emergency Medicine. The faculty consists of both medical and nursing staff and the day is open to both groups to participate.

Ideally doctors should be CT3 or above, with preference given to PEM trainees due to the limited number of places. Unfortunately this is only open to those working in the East Midlands at the moment.

The session is held in the Clinical Skills lab at Leicester Royal Infirmary.

Special credit as ever to Gareth Lewis who organises us all.
