Leeds Teaching Hospitals – Clinical Induction
Click on the screen thumbnails to magnify.
Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust is the largest teaching hospital in Europe and has over 1,000 doctors in training at any one time.
Dynamic had previously developed the junior doctor induction for the Trust in 2007 which proved a huge success in terms of streamlining the induction process for junior doctors joining the Trust. In 2010 the induction needed to be updated, however, the Trust wanted to try a different approach to providing mandatory training and so a clean sheet development approach was undertaken.
The result is a highly innovative induction process, which makes extensive use of green screen video and 3D animation to make the learner feel like they are actually there in the Trust. Following a major event in the city centre, a number of casualties arrive at the Emergency Department and a MAJAX (Major Accident Response Procedure) is announced, the learner has to leave their induction and go to the Emergency Department and treat a number of patients with various injuries. During this time in the Emergency Department they are tested on their abilities to apply all of the key elements from their mandatory training.
A complex and demanding project was managed effectively by combining the clinical expertise of the hospital staff with the technical and instructional design skills of the Dynamic team. The result - a truly novel and highly engaging induction for the new hospital doctors at Leeds.
