CSMEN wins prestigious ASPIRE award

The Clinical Skills Managed Educational Network (CSMEN) has become the world’s first national simulation network to win the prestigious ASPIRE 2018 Award for Excellence in Simulation.

The award from the Association for Medical Education in Europe recognises the work of NHS Education for Scotland (NES), BASICS Scotland and the Scottish Simulation Centre for Clinical Human Factors in providing over 10 years of pre-hospital emergency care training. In this time, over 9000 remote and rural practitioners with limited access to high quality training have received support from CSMEN through their use of a mobile simulation unit and online learning resources.

Representing BASICS Scotland at Monday’s award ceremony was Colville Laird, a member of the CSMEN team.
