Psychiatry Simulation-Based Education/ Human Factors Northern Ireland Pilot
On 1st March 2019 a multi-disciplinary Psychiatry Simulation-Based Education/ Human Factors (SBE/HF) pilot took place in the Simulation Centre at Elliot Dynes, Royal Victoria Hospital.
This pilot was created and led by Dr. Stephanie Campbell, ST6 Psychiatry Registrar and current ADEPT Sim Fellow, and Dr. Dearbhail Lewis, Consultant Liaison Psychiatrist, both current Sim Leads for Psychiatry within Northern Ireland, after identifying an opportunity to improve the experience of more junior trainees rotating through a Psychiatry placement within the BHSCT using SBE.

Feedback was overwhelmingly positive, with the session being described as very beneficial and containing very relevant content. Going forward, it is envisioned that SBE/ HF training within Psychiatry will become an accredited part of the trainee curriculum in Northern Ireland.
Work on the pilot will be presented on Friday 3rd May 2019 at the Psychiatry Spring Meeting, Titanic Belfast.
