GAPS enhances patient care through learner-centred simulation and skills training. We design and deliver high quality programmes which recognise the essential place of multi-professional teams in the delivery of healthcare. We provide a full range of simulation-based training from high-fidelity full-immersion for real teams to part-task skills development exercises for individuals.
We work to place patient-safety at the heart of St George’s and the wider health community. Our approach is evidence-based and aligned to service needs. We aim to improve practice and reduce error, strengthening an institutional memory by expanding the opportunities for participation in our programmes for all staff involved in patient care.
We continually evaluate the impact of what we do for our learners and engage in research into the learning process. We do this with the objective of increasing the value of our work for our learners and learners in general and will always treat them and data they have provided with respect, confidentiality and in accordance with the guidelines provided by the NHS, the Integrated Research Application System and the Declaration of Helsinki.
