    • The game is designed to facilitate communication, collaborative team-working, evidence-based clinical decision-making, leadership development and resource allocation.

      It can be used with all qualified staff and students; the organiser sets the degree of complexity to suit the knowledge levels and educational needs of each group.

      Each 90-minute session can accommodate between 12 and 16 people. It happens in the workplace, so disruption is minimised. No external support required to facilitate the game so there are no hidden costs. Any senior member of staff can act as Lead Facilitator.  

      What does the simulation do?

      It is intense, complex, enjoyable and effective. The game includes a wide range of scenarios, events and mother profiles. Making it a very flexible and adaptive training resource for all staff, managers and students.
