The RCoA aims to be a leader in the effective use of simulation to enhance professional development, improve the quality of patient care and to inform the design of healthcare systems to support patient safety and staff well-being. The RCoA Simulation Working Group will provide the focus for this work within the College.

The story so far:

  • Creation of a simulation working group and regional simulation leads
  • Scoping practice and access to resources
  • Development of a College strategy relevant to all grades and departments
