HECTOR Scotland course off to a positive start

The first Scottish cohort of the silver trauma course HECTOR was delivered at Scottish Centre for Simulation and Clinical Human Factors (SCSCHF) on the 20th and 21st March.

The 15 participants were from mixed professions including care of the elderly and frailty medicine, GPs, advanced practitioners from nursing and allied health professions and major trauma co-ordinators. All the Scottish regional trauma networks were represented

The Hector faculty from the Northern Trauma Network in England travelled to Scotland to facilitate the programme alongside Dr Joel Burton and other STN colleagues.

It was a busy 2 days filled with simulated scenarios to practice assessment and decision-making skills with supportive materials and discussion.

There was lots of positive energy and initial feedback from the participants was that they valued the course content, approach and learning from each other. Next steps are formal evaluation and to grow the Scottish faculty for the next cohort
