The faculty specialises in the teaching of students in paramedics and social work sciences in the practical teaching of clinical skills simulation. The South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust is a part of the National Health Service, established on 1st July 2006 following the merger of four ambulance trusts in the counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and Oxfordshire. This area covers approximately 3554 sq. miles with a residential population of over 4 million.
Their emergency operations centres handle around 500,000 emergency calls each year. As a part of their on-going development, our cSkills recording system was chosen as part of their new mobile "simbulance", a fully functional ambulance used to train and educate medics all over the region.
Some of the key features our system had to deliver were as follows:
Three fixed wide angle cameras were installed in the practice area along with with ceiling mounted microphones capturing the audio. The neighbouring control room has a video and audio preview and houses the main recording and control equipment.
De-briefing and viewing are carried out on the main system in the control room, furthermore an additional tablet was provided to allow simultaneous recording functions, tagging and de-brief from the device.
The main features of the fixed camera solution include:
The new state of the art Dow Clinical Simulation Suite officially opened in 2011, with Cameron Communications providing the new recording technology.Read More
