WINNER: Best New Society 2017-18: UWE Society Awards

WINNER: Most Improved Society 2018-19: UWE Society Awards 

 

Society Mission Statement:

"Our aim is to improve prehospital practice and awareness through the simulation of varied and challenging scenarios. Led by students, for students."

 

    Who are we? 

 >  We are a student led society that was created in 2017 at Glenside Campus. Founded by a group of Paramedic Science undergraduate students, the society was created to increase the amount of simulation time that students have access to. 

  > We include participants from all year groups to allow students' clinical competency to grow and improve, supported by others with more experience. Having all year groups working together allows for professional and personal relationships to develop across all three year groups.

  > Based at Glenside Campus, we utilise the fantastic simulation space and equipment that UWE has to offer! 

  > The events that we organise are guided by the demand of the student body. We aim to provide simulation that students feel they need support or practice with. By increasing exposure to these patients/environments, students practical skills and confidence will increase, therefore improving the standard of patient centred care out on placement! 

  > OUR main goal is to create a learning environment where students dont feel worried about trying new skills! We are all students so learning from our mistakes is encouraged and no question is a silly question! We are all here to learn and develop together in a non-judgemental environment!
