the north east simulation trainee and teaching fellow interest group
NESTFIG was established in 2018 to address the needs of all healthcare professionals in the North East of England, both undergraduate, and postgraduate, who are interested in simulation, medical education, human factors and patient safety.
Simulation, as an educational and patient safety tool, is continuing to grow in popularity locally, and nationally. The pace of change is fast, and the ever-increasing landscape of simulation is becomingly more complex every year. Despite this, few are trained early in their careers in how to best deliver simulation activities, leading to large numbers of projects being replicated locally, and nationally.
The goals of NESTFIG are to facilitate high quality simulation training across the region, in an effective and efficient format, focusing on trainees and teaching fellows, as the key players in upskilling the workforce, to better support local HCP development and transformation, and ultimately develop high quality, and safer, patient care.
