Dr Julie Mardon,  Lead for Undergraduate Simulation Training, Glasgow Medical School

Julie is an emergency medicine consultant based in Crosshouse Hospital Ayrshire and Arran and leads simulation training within this region. She also is lead for undergraduate Simulation training at Glasgow Medical School. Over the years she has delivered many in situ simulation training programmes. Most recently after a fellowship in quality improvement she has combined in situ simulation and quality improvement methodologies. This has enabled improvement in quality of patient care and patient safety. Her presentation will cover details of these improvement projects with emphasis on how to use in situ simulation most effectively


The program will also feature a NESN shining stars section, providing an opportunity to see local speakers  who have won prizes at national conferences such as Dr Noni Mordi, winner of the ASME 2018 Masterclass Prize, for "Mapping and interpreting fidelity in simulation based medical education"


If you were unable to catch MELISSA at the launch this is another opportunity to see her!
