Paediatric Inquest Simulation Course

03 October @ 8:30 am 04 October @ 5:00 pm

Dear Colleagues,

Study days: Coronial Inquest Simulation.

The landscape of inquests is evolving nationally, with both their frequency and complexity on the rise. To address these changes, we are delighted to announce an upcoming 2-day educational course focused on the inquest process and statement writing, culminating in a unique simulation-based mock inquest.

This bespoke training program has been developed by the in-house healthcare legal team at University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust in collaboration with the MAPLE team. Drawing from their experience in supporting staff during inquests, this course offers you the chance to practice giving evidence in a simulated courtroom setting. Additionally, we will feature insights from a clinician experienced in giving evidence, emphasising well-being and prioritising the family’s perspective throughout the proceedings.

To ensure these sessions meet to your needs and experience, we kindly request you to complete a brief, anonymous questionnaire. Your feedback will play a pivotal role in tailoring essential educational packages for you and your teams. You can alsoopt in for updates on future training dates by providing your email address in the questionnaire (using an nhs.net or trust/organisational affiliated email).

Please complete the questionnaire here: 

  • *SAVE THE DATE*: Our first educational event will spotlight paediatric inquests, scheduled for October 3rd and 4th, 2024. Please refer to the attached poster for detailed information. This session is designed for doctors and nurses working in paediatric healthcare.

Details for the adult inquest study days will be announced in the future. To stay informed about upcoming dates and developments, please register your interest via the questionnaire or contact us at maplecourses@uhbw.nhs.uk.

Please share with your teams or other colleagues who may be interested in joining the education days.

Thank you for your attention, and we look forward to your participation.
