Sufficient leads and facilitators to deliver the course with the specific skill set:

  • Local Course Lead who must be an ENT Consultant and an Anaesthetist, both of whom have attended a course previously as an observer or are members of the faculty
  • Paediatric Anaesthetic Consultants (at least 6 are needed)
  • Paediatric ENT Consultants (6-8 needed)
  • At least 50 % of facilitators must have delivered before  and others should have previously attended the course or similar e.g. APLS
  • A total of at least 6 rooms which will include 4 simulation bays, 4 small rooms for round table discussions and a lecture hall, all with audio visual

Access to all simulation equipment (computerized babies/mannequins and bronchoscopy sets will possibly be available from STORZ when a date is confirmed)

  • Optional dates to accommodate the availability of the facilitator and venue requirements from 9.00am till 5.00pm
  • Local accommodation for out-of-region facilitators and pre-course dinner for all facilitators to discuss details of course delivery on the evening prior to the course
