KwickScreen partition screens with high fidelity images play an important role in education of young medical students by providing realistic scenarios for simulation training.
Working under pressure seems natural when you are experienced but teaching new staff can be difficult if all you teach is theory.
Simulation training provides students with a safe learning environment in which they can develop skills without the risk of making a detrimental mistake.
KwickScreen Partition Screens Improve Patient Safety
We worked with DipHE Operating Department Practice at Buckinghamshire New University to provide its students with high-tech equipment to create realistic scenarios they are likely to encounter in the real life once they finish their studies.
Course Leader Shane Roadnight said: “We want to give our students an experience as close as possible to scenarios they will encounter in the real world.
In our case KwickScreens are ideal for projecting images which gives the illusion that students are occupying a space in various specialised venues within the operating department or in an ambulance.
We use it daily as an interactive tool and it has changed the way we teach things, meaning we can effectively turn one room into two or three and meaning scenarios can be played out in real-time.”
Mr Roadnight said, for example, real-world anaesthetic rooms are notoriously small and enclosed so introducing a partition creates a more realistic clinical practice in a controlled environment.
He added: “The students really like it and it’s amazing how separate they feel on the other side of the partition.
Having use of this kind of equipment to benefit our students’ learning will ultimately lead to improved patient safety when they enter the workplace.”

How KwickScreen Can Help
Simulation is an invaluable tool to teach and educate students, staff and patients in a safe, non-threatening environment.
KwickScreen partition screens are flexible, as well as having interchangeable panels, offer a variety of ways to use and change simulation exercises. The portable nature of the screens and small footprint, means that it is easy to store and move around between locations.
So the next time you are thinking of creating a simulation environment, remember to use KwickScreens and give us a call today.
