The Health Education North East Simulation Network priority work stream includes the establishment of not only the sufficient quantity of simulation trained faculty to meet the overall training needs of the region but also to guarantee a high quality standard of such faculty who will strive for excellence aiming for the highest levels of Kirkpatrick Evidence in any project undertaken. As a faculty we want to use simulation in our everyday practice but also evaluate the outcomes in order to demonstrate an improvement in patient care that is not anecdotal.

In order to achieve this goal there is a focus on collaborative working and sharing of good practice both within local organisations but also sharing of resources between organisations and institutions locally and across the North through the newly established Northern Simulation Group.
In order to encourage sharing individuals must register with the North East Simulation Network in order to have easy access to restricted areas such as the Network Scenario database, Network updates such as the North East Standards and Accreditation process, links to recommended documents and links, past and present information from TEL and access to information on Speciality Interest Groups in the North East and Cumbria Region. Members will also be able to register their interests and get tailored news for their selections in addition to advanced notification regarding NESN events.
