A report from the joint JRCPTB/Health Education England (HEE) Expert Group on Simulation in Core Medical Training
There is good evidence that certain CMT practical procedures (central venous catheterisation, thoracentesis, abdominal paracentesis) and emergency presentations (cardiorespiratory arrest) can improve patient outcomes if taught using SBE. There is no obvious reason why additional CMT procedures should not also be taught using SBE, indeed the evidence points to it being desirable to do so
It also found that there is reasonable evidence that non-technical and human factors skills required by CMT can be effectively taught using SBE
- The teaching of CMT essential and desirable procedures and also non-technical skills using SBE is already widespread within the UK and CMT training programme directors (TPDs) support this training.
