This episode features Ken Spearpoint. Ken is Consultant Nurse, Resuscitation, Hammersmith Hospital & Principal Lecturer, Medical Simulation, University of Hertfordshire.
Ken is very experienced in the area of resuscitation, having been working in this field since the 1990’s. He has seen the service develop a lot in that time and that is discussed in the podcast.
He is also involved in a Masters level course teaching others how to set up and run Medical Simulation. To quote from their web page:
“This programme offers the opportunity to study all aspects of Simulation as way of providing education and training to others, whilst grounding it firmly in a sound evidence based knowledge of educational theory and practice. You will have the opportunity to study all aspects of the theory and practice of health and medical education in the workplace, the design, and delivery of scenarios and simulation sessions, planning simulation facilities, programming simulators. You will also have the opportunity to study medical emergencies and managing risk, leadership and teamwork, business skills, and evidence based practice.”
I hope you enjoy the discussion and please feel free to contribute to the podcast by getting in touch with me. I would love to hear your views on any of the points raised.
