Learning opportunities at MFT Wythenshawe/Withington and community settings • Simulation Learning • Integrated care pathways • Hub and Spokes
Simulated education offers students and clinicians a chance to experience patient situations in the simulation suite, working inter-professionally, to develop knowledge and skills in the management of critically ill patients, in a harm free environment. All students on placement at MFT will have the opportunity to attend Simulated Educational sessions, to enhance their knowledge and skills in patient care. Sessions utilise the SBAR patient handover tool, to examine the patient situation. This is a developing programme; to date students have had opportunities to take part in the following: COPD, Macmillan Cancer Care, Dietetics, Infant Bereavement,
The hub and spoke model of learning is commonly used within learning environments across the trust. The main aim is to offer students a wider experience to enable understanding of other professional roles and their contribution in the patient’s care. The main placement is the hub and the spokes are alternative learning environments linked to the placement which can broaden the depth of the student experience. Information and opportunities for spokes relevant to student outcomes are available in each placement area and the mentor/educator can help identify what may be relevant for specific student’s learning.
