Formerly MOET, Managing Medical and Obstetric Emergencies and Trauma (mMOET) course has been renamed to highlight the medical emergencies together with the trauma components of the course.  mMOET is an  internationally recognised obstetrics course, designed for senior clinicians from multi-disciplinary specialties managing and leading the care of pregnant women with medical emergencies and/or trauma.  mMOET provides a high-level structured approach to managing these patients and includes 24 training scenarios providing exposure to and practice in a wide variety of obstetric medical and trauma emergencies.  As our maternity population becomes more clinically complex, the mMOET course includes simulations and teaching reflecting the latest morbidity and mortality findings, as identified in the annual MBRRACE-UK report (most recently published June 2017).

Children’s Advanced Trauma (CAT) courses
The Children’s Advanced Trauma (CAT) course is aimed at clinicians who have a first line role in managing major paediatric trauma in a trauma centre. The course is delivered via written material, lectures and practical skills teaching including several hi-fidelity trauma simulations. These simulations use realistic numbers of clinicians from all the appropriate specialties in scenarios that run in real time for about 20-25 minutes followed by debrief and discussion.  The course manual is a 70 page in-depth guide to all aspects of major paediatric trauma.  The written material, lectures and simulation are delivered by experts in trauma and resuscitation, intensive care, anaesthetics, transport medicine, paediatric surgery and neurosurgery.

On average there are two CAT courses every year in Sheffield.  The places on these courses are intended for candidates from all over the UK to come together and learn about the latest and best management of major paediatric trauma.  A local one day course is provided in Sheffield for candidates who require more basic knowledge and to gain experience of paediatric trauma.  Candidates who apply for the CAT course but are not short-listed may be offered a place on the Children's Intermediate Trauma (one-day) course. For more information email alison.kimber@sch.nhs.uk or visit our website.

Connecting with People: Emotional Resilience and Suicide Awareness training

The training comprises a series of peer reviewed and independently evaluated 2 hour modules, ideally suited to CPD and in-house training sessions. Participants will be able to develop a compassionate approach suitable for a demanding and time-pressured environment. At the end of the modules participants will be able to use the clinical resources to enhance their assessment and response to a suicidal patient. They will be able to undertake a safe triage and referral if appropriate, reduce their patients’ distress, and collaboratively create a safety plan to increase their patients’ resilience to suicidal thoughts.
