A group that meets to discuss, develop, promote and support simulation excellence across all courses and events.
In Focus Project
Virtual Clinical Settings:
Using 360-degree cameras to immerse users in clinical resources
The aim of the Simulation Engagement Group (SEG) is to promote, engage with and evaluate simulation activity across the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health. Working alongside the Simulation Strategy and the Simulation Research Strategy.
The group will meet every four-six weeks either face to face for online depending on circumstances. Each course group will need a member of staff to attend and engage in these meetings and report back, this role is called a Simulation Engagement Champion.

Engaging in innovative simulation across the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health
What is Simulation?
Simulation is the replication of skill, task, setting or experience. This can be to replicate the correct way to perform an activity or to experience error within a safe learning space. Simulation can take place in a physical setting or a virtual/online setting.
Why do we need simulation governance across the school?
Standardizing key elements of our approach and delivery of simulation is vital to a positive student experience. It is important that we clearly outline the minimum requirements for successful simulation delivery within the school. This allows students, staff and service users to feel more confident in engaging with simulation opportunities.
With simulation occurring on a daily basis it is a challenging task documenting the regularity and quality of activities. This is where simulation champions can hold responsibility for promoting good simulation practice within their course teams.
Journal of Simulation and Digital Pedagogy in Health has been developed and created by the teams at Cov Uni Sim.
