CME Medical helps Birmingham hospital to introduce new training courses

13th November 2013

CME Medical technology is being utilised by the Good Hope Hospital in Birmingham to support the introduction of a pioneering and unique training programme.

The Hollier Simulation Centre uses realistic mannequins, along with actors and trained staff, to simulate end-of-life situations, thereby helping to train doctors, nurses and care workers from hospices and other healthcare settings.

Courses include the use of CME Medical's T34 Ambulatory Syringe Pump, which is commonly used during palliative care in patients' homes, care homes, hospices and hospitals.

The T34 will be used to demonstrate patient management techniques alongside I-STAN, a high-fidelity mannequin that is able to talk and simulate a number of signs and symptoms.

Dr Lisa Boulstridge, consultant in palliative medicine at the Heart of England NHS Trust, said: "As far as we are aware, we are the only simulation centre in the UK which has developed such a range of training courses in end of life and palliative care."

The company encouraged hospices around the country to upgrade their older ambulatory syringe drivers to the T34 Ambulatory Syringe Pump during Hospice Care Week last month.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801660320-ADNFCR
