Involving student nurses in inter-disciplinary simulation in paediatrics

Learning about the roles of other staff encourages professional development.

Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has invited student nurses from its paediatric wards to "play" the nursing role, as well as simulate the role of a child's parent or carer, to improve the quality of the paediatric emergency training.

This downloadable resource - involving student nurses in inter-disciplinary simulation in paediatrics - summarises the practice and provides the contact details of the lead.
