Welcome to our new September 21 Students.
Health Technical Resources is open Mon-Thu 0830-1700, Fri 0830-1630. There may be ad-hoc times that we need to close for 10-15 minutes to help sort out a troublesome patient. We are still available via email to assist you where possible via our central inbox ! RWB Technical Request or firstname.lastname@example.org . Alternatively you contact us using the “Contact Us” link at the bottom of the page.
If you need assistance with your uniform or placement ID badge please visit our Uniform page.
We are still practicing “HANDS, FACE, SPACE” in the Health Specialist Teaching areas at SHU. PPE is available in all the specialist rooms and should be worn in simulation / practical sessions in line with current NHS practices.
Given the vast amount of equipment that is needed for each practical, we do need your help in cleaning the kit at the end of your session. If you are using lots of equipment then it would be better to wear gloves and use alcohol hand sanitiser over the gloves once they are on. This should remove the need for repeated alcohol cleaning and UV serialisation which will reduce the lifespan of some items greatly. You may also be directed to bring some additional items which we would have previously supplied such as a pillow and towel for physio sessions.
Clinical Simulation Technical Team
The Technical Operations, Resources and Services Clinical Simulation team support teaching, learning and assessment in the College of Health, Wellbeing and Life Sciences. The technical team is based in the Robert Winston Building, which hosts the Simulated Healthcare Facility (SHF).
The SHF provides a safe, controlled and supportive environment in which students can study and practice before entering the healthcare world. Areas are designed to replicate specific healthcare settings allowing students to gain valuable hands-on experience and to develop skills and knowledge through simulated exercises.
The Clinical Simulation Technical Operations, Resources and Services team provides support for the Nursing and Midwifery, Allied Health Professionals and Social Work and Social Care departments. Our aim is to enhance the student learning experience through high quality support services. This could be supporting session delivery; creating new simulated learning resources; or creating opportunities for students to practice their skills.
