Youth Health Leaders in Blackpool Schools

This eWIN Case Study is about a Youth Leaders Programme in Blackpool. Practice Development Sister Sharon Vickers was concerned at the numbers of young people coming to hospital with lifestyle related problems such as alcohol dependency, substance abuse and teenage pregnancy and wanted to do something to help these young people take charge of their own wellbeing and prevent hospital admission. She set up the Youth Health Leaders project in local schools to:

Mentor Toolkit to support Mental Health and Wellbeing

This Bitesize Case Study briefly explains the development and implementation of a Mentor Toolkit designed to provide practical guidance for mentors to support students in practice who may be experiencing emotional distress and/or issues relating to their mental wellbeing. The study is mapped to HEE's Quality Standards and explains what the team set out to do, what the intervention was and the Key Outcomes and Lessons Learned.

Transforming Learning Environments (TLE) - It Matters

This eWIN Case Study gives an overview of Transforming Learning Environments (TLE) events run in the North. Health Education England (HEE) working across the North West asked all Practice Education Facilitators (PEFs), Placement Development Managers (PDMs), Work Based Education Facilitators (WBEFs), and Skills for Health Academy North West to work collaboratively to transform the learning environment following an HEE event in 2015.

Student Engagement Forum

At Bolton NHS Foundation Trust the students’ voice matters and as such it is high on the pre-registration team’s agenda.  The Trust has created a platform – Student Engagement Forum - for students to voice their views regarding issues that affect them.  The inaugural events were held in May and July 2016, the months when we had the highest numbers of students on placement at the Trust.

‘Better at Home’ - simulated learning for parents and carers

The ‘Better at Home’ project was introduced to support transition to home for technology dependent children with complex health care needs by providing training and support to parents and unpaid carers.

Many of these children require complex medical interventions including tracheostomy, gastrostomy and children who are ventilator dependent. There were three elements to the project:
•    WellChild Parent Trainer Role
•    ‘Better at Home’ Simulation Suite
•    eLearning materials

Enhancing Patient Safety through Multi-Disciplinary In Situ Simulation

In March 2015, the Simulation and Skills Centre team at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (BTH) commenced a multi-disciplinary in situ simulation patient safety programme. The premise for the programme was to identify latent risk, system issues and human factors within all working environments, across the organisation, which can compromise patient safety. The priorities for the patient safety programme were to address high risk areas (clinical and non-clinical) and causes of incidents, complaints and risks. 

Cadaveric Surgical Skills Workshop

University Hospital of South Manchester (UHSM) has developed a simulated surgery workshop using a novel whole body fresh frozen cadaveric model to enhance the operative surgical training for the Core Surgical Trainees in a safe environment.UHSM piloted a series of Cadaveric Surgical Skills Workshops as a part of the Better Training Better Care (BTBC) programme initiative which aimed to develop sustainable and adoptable models to maximise learning opportunities in the time available for training.These multi-professional surgical workshops allow Core Surgical Trainees (CSTs) to develop skills

Preceptee experiences and the role of the Preceptorship Facilitator

This case study outlines the key findings and learning uncovered from an evaluation of the programme and the new role - the Preceptorship Facilitator (PF), to provide additional support. The study sought to determine whether the PF role provided additional support and helped Preceptees overcome challenges faced during the transition period. Any problems encountered are discussed with particular focus on the involvement of the PF to determine any positive benefits that emerged from the relationship.
