Using technology to extend access and enhance training within Healthcare
Access to high quality training and professional development is a key part of the process to maintain standards of care within the NHS. Approved on the NHS Shared Business Service Framework, Pure AV works alongside Healthcare trusts to help improve the quality and capacity of the training facilities available to staff.
The training spaces involved range from traditional classroom or lecture theatre environments to complex simulation suites designed to create realistic clinical or workplace scenarios. Whatever the environment, the challenges for many healthcare trusts are familiar ones. The need to reduce costs but deliver an enhanced service, to respond to increased demand for training capacity without a meaningful increase in funding. We recognise the pressures within the healthcare system which is why, whether working on a traditional classroom, lecture theatre or a complex simulation suite we focus our activity on the delivery of cost-effective solutions that help to maximise available resources.
We’ve helped Education Centres within the NHS to increase access to specialist training through the introduction of lecture capture and live streaming solutions. The Christie Education Centre offers just one example of how the use of lecture capture can enable training to be made available to a much greater number of people than could be accommodated in the physical training environment alone.
Simulation suites are another area in which AV plays a big part in the quality of and access to training.
We worked with The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, on a new, award nominated, Simulation and Clinical Skills Centre at Royal Oldham Hospital. Featuring two simulation bays with high-tech manikins, a consulting room and two debriefing rooms used to recreate realistic clinical settings for medical skills training.
The system installed by Pure AV allows all aspects of the training undertaken to be analysed and detailed feedback to be given to delegates, helping them to develop the skills needed to deal with the challenges faced on a daily basis within a real hospital environment.
We also work with healthcare clients on solutions for MDT rooms, bedside TV, signage and wayfinding, and telemedicine. Our solutions are designed to help improve communication, maximise resources and achieve successful, cost-effective collaboration in the delivery of patient care.
Our team will work in partnership with you to create reliable, easy-to-use systems that support your day-to-day activity and prioritise your healthcare aims.
