Paediatric Simulation and Paediatric Trauma
A1.3 Interdepartmental Simulation Training – Experience in Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital, and the Road Ahead
Dr Victor CM Chan
Department of Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine,
Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital
Dr Victor CM Chan is currently specialized in neonatology with the Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital. He earned his medical degree in Hong Kong. After he had completed the Paediatric specialist training in Hong Kong, he’ve spent a year in Melbourne to work in the Neonatal Emergency Transport team and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Royal Children’s Hospital and Royal Women’s Hospital respectively.
Dr Chan is enthusiastic in simulation-based medical education. He is an instructor on Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP), Neonatal Emergency Transportation Simulation (NETS) Program, Paediatric Emergency Transportation Simulation (PETS) Program, S.T.B.L.E. course (which is targeting at pre-transport stabilization of sick infants), as well as a Crew Resources Management (CRM) simulation instructor.
Apart from neonatology and medical education, Dr Chan is also interested in improvement of quality and patient safety in the public health care system. He is now serving as the Deputy Service Director of Quality and Safety Office in the Hong Kong East Cluster.
Simulation-based medical education has largely been adopted to improve professional competencies. Multidisciplinary teams in-situ simulation effectively improves knowledge, technical skills and teamwork. Collaborative practice involved in an interdepartmental simulation training may increase patient safety by identifying latent safety threat in clinical setting and enhancing communication within interdisciplinary teams.
