Neonatal Simulation Instructor Course United Kingdom

Recommended Posts

Dear Colleagues

Our next neonatal simulation instructor course runs in June 25th and 26th 2024 in Southampton UK.


The MPROvE neonatal simulation instructor course was established in 2012. The concept MPROvE relates to multidisciplinary education of any kind (i.e. multidisciplinary neonatal simulation, or TEL) being used to improve the quality of care and or neonatal outcomes. The MPROvE team delivers the neonatal simulation instructor course in 2 modules. The intention is to help institutions, hospitals, teams and specialties develop faculty skilled in using simulation and technology enhanced learning as an educational tool for quality improvement, delivery of high quality neonatal care and  to improve neonatal outcomes. The course is run in Southampton annually but can be delivered anywhere in the world over 2 days. The team brings the manikins, and the trainers can come down to your institute to train your faculty.


Course Overview

The MPROvE neonatal instructor training course was established by Neonatologists, and experts in simulation education. The course helps to train individuals in becoming simulation instructors, but the aim is the faculty development of multidisciplinary teams. Training provided includes learning how to develop faculty, run and administer  programmes cost-effectively and use simulation and TEL as a tool in their set up.  

The course addresses the following over 2 days-

       Educational principles in simulation, Adult learning theory,

       Modelling delivery of your simulation programme

       Scenario design, Packaging of Scenarios, Manikin Modification and Moulage

       Debriefing principles, Debriefing styles, Difficult Debriefing

       Running high fidelity simulation and equipment training

       Issues of confidentiality and ethics

       Simulating death

       An optional 3rd day can cover Advanced equipment training, Faculty development, Running and Administering Programmes, Task training methodology or Video debriefing and Accreditation.


 Participants & Preparation

For courses held in the UK, participants are limited to 15. The number of participants for courses abroad and the days over which the course is held need to be discussed with the organizers. All participants must fill in a pre-course questionnaire for a needs assessment https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Mproveinstructor. They also must complete 4 assignments for the course which can be accessed here. Wider reading around the assignments is encouraged and literature is available on request.


All the course participants are provided mentorship post completion through the community forum of the website for a year after the course. This is also available via email contact to draloksharma74@gmail.com. Please note as additional material is added to the website, participants have access to this as well and can contribute material which they would like to, under their own authorship, without MPROvE branding.


All course participants are provided with a simulation provider certificate after completion of the course feedback form. Course participants are mentored and those aspiring to can choose to complete the processes for accreditation to become a simulation instructor course provider as described in the section on accreditation.


After course completion course participants can access the following-

· A library of scenarios covering the neonatal airway, difficult neonatal airway, preterm birth, cardiology, respiratory, neurology, neonatal surgical, neonatal transport, and ethics for implementation in their programmes. 

· A library of images explaining manikin modification and moulage in neonatal simulation.

· A repository of videos which cover task training covering, neonatal intubation, difficult neonatal airway management, use of airway adjuncts, central access, lumbar puncture, needle thoracentesis, chest drain insertion and arterial line insertion.

·         Neonatal Toolkits-There are multiple toolkits which contain training resources for a variety of quality improvement initiatives. They are currently under development and will include teaching resources, videos and interactive content.
