Annual HEE TV Educator Study Day 2014

On Wednesday 19 November, HEE TV held the Annual Educator Study Day, an event to support all those involved in delivering excellent education and training, while also recognising and celebrating their contribution.

Each year, HEE TV's Postgraduate Medical and Education (PGME) team deliver the Annual Educator Study Day as a means of bringing together senior medical educators from across the Thames Valley, together with HEE TV's own Deanery faculty and wider staff. The day provides a development opportunity for those involved in delivering education.

With around 100 delegates, this year was the first multi-professional event, with senior medical educators by representatives from other professions, including learning and education leads from nursing, midwifery and other healthcare professions from across NHS providers in the Thames Valley.

Keynote speakers included Professor Jan Illing, Health Director of the Centre for Medical Education Research, who discussed: "Professionalism - can it be taught?". Updates on the ongoing GMC Regional Visit were given, with valuable contributions made by those Local Education Providers who have already been visited, as well as looking ahead to the GMC attending HEE TV next week (27/28 November).

Elective workshops gave delegates further opportunities to learn new skills, from sessions on effective feedback, opportunities to improve care quality and how to address undermining behaviours. The highlight this year was a contribution by Flying Officer & Squadron Leader Dheeraj Bhasin, British Airways and former RAF combat pilot, who spoke on risk management and error-reduction. These themes were taken through to the British Airways Flight Simulator machine for delegates to experience first-hand risk management from different perspectives.

Dr Michael Bannon, Postgraduate Dean, HEE TV, said:

"We attract some of the highest achieving junior doctors to train in the Thames Valley, and similarly highly motivated and skilled students training to join other healthcare professions, and it is our commitment that we provide the very best education and training for them, delivered through our team of skilled and dedicated faculty of educators and trainers. It is through this high quality education and training, right across the workforce, that we will ensure we develop professionals who have not only the right skills, but also values and behaviours which will deliver care which is of the highest standard.

"The Educator Study Day is our opportunity to ensure that we are supporting these educators; keeping them up to date, giving them new skills and helping to share the best practice which we have here in the region. It is rightly a badge of honour to be an educator, as it is through their work that we create the very best doctors and healthcare professionals who in turn deliver great care to patients.

"My thanks to all those who made the day such a success, particularly Miss Jane Siddall, Associate Dean for Educator Faculty Development who led the day, supported by many people."
