High fidelity simulation: Using to technology to enhance simulation in Paramedic Practice
“The paramedic team have recently been experimenting with simulation and social media to simulate techniques that replicate ‘real-world’ activities and provides students with the opportunity to explore their own learning in a controlled environment. It can be difficult to ensure both the fidelity and the relevance of a simulation in a simulation or clinical skills.
The utilisation of technology can increase the immersion of a student in simulation. Recreation of an environment can allow the student to practice skills in a safe space with the feel of working in practice, creating an unpredictable event in a predictable environment. The use of patient monitors and mannequins that produce a life-like props that can be controlled by the academic, but interacted with by the student, can further add to this.
If you interested in using this technology or looking to explore innovation in your area please get in touch or come and see us … we are presenting our current work at the SOLSTICE Conference which is being held at Edge Hill University on 4th and 5th June 2019.
Barry Matthews and Rory Mc Kelvin are Lecturer’s in Paramedic Practice and Pre-hospital Care is based at St.James, Edge Hill University’s Manchester Campus.

Dance Festive Gathering!!!
On Saturday the department held a wonderful event with mince pies and other festive refreshments in advance of the First Years first choreographic performance for their DAN1105 module, which included three group pieces made by the tutor and the students collaboratively.
This year mindful of induction and transitions, building on last years extremely successful ‘Festive Friday’ strategy the team took the opportunity to make a full piece about ‘Transitions’. The students and I went on a complete journey with the research and discussions surrounding the idea of the transitions we make in life, particularly from FE to HE. The piece was very well received by the audience and the marks for my group are particularly high for their process and performance. The work was also informed by the book The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, which allowed for a narrative stimulus for the piece.
The team believe that this work would be really good to perform at a Transitions/Recruitment event and could be adapted for a variety of spaces, hence the team are exploring the potential of taking the performance to some of our local colleges, and also using the piece to work secondary schools, and also to further support recruitment during Subject Taster days.
