MSU Faculty Development Course

The two day MSU Faculty Development course is run by the Scottish Centre for Simulation and Clinical Human Factors on the Mobile Skills Unit (MSU) at Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Larbert. It has been created specifically for educators who will use the MSU. It is recommended that a minimum of two professionals from an area complete this course before the MSU is scheduled for a visit.

The main focus of the course is to ensure all participants are equipped with the knowledge and training on how to get best use of the equipment on the unit.

The key components of the course include:

  • Orientation to the MSU
  • Identifying learning objectives for scenario training
  • The use of SimMan/SimJunior/SimBaby/SimNewB and part task trainers to create realistic clinical scenarios
  • Use of audio-visual equipment to assist debriefing
  • Knowledge and application of facilitated debriefing skills

This is achieved through a combination of presentations, small group work and a lot of hands-on practical application of the material covered.
