    Abstract

    The University of Dundee Clinical Skills Centre developed and facilitated a generic skills course for the emergency assessment of patients as part of the Introductory Hospital at Night (H@N) Programme within the local NHS Trust. As part of the course a Ward Simulation Exercise (WSE) was developed to provide an effective means of providing individual practitioners with feedback on performance. The University of Dundee School of Nursing and Midwifery has also developed a Masters in Advanced Practice (Nursing) with key modules to address the learning needs of H@N practitioners including modules in Clinical Assessment and Diagnosis, Clinical Sciences for Advanced Practice and the Principles of Acute and Critical Care. This paper describes how the WSE was developed, implemented and evaluated
