Paediatric Oracle Project

Organisation : NHS Lothian
Grant Amount : £ 21,806

On average in the UK only 8 to 12 weeks of the whole undergraduate curriculum is focused on paediatrics. This means that most our paediatric junior staff at Foundation and specialty level do not have core paediatric knowledge on starting their first paediatric post. Despite advanced induction training and face to face simulation training sessions to aid acquisition of experiential clinical knowledge in RHSC evidence demonstrates that lack of online materials to preload clinical knowledge and lack of real time access to care protocols is impairing patient care. The Paediatric Oracle Project seeks to address this imbalance through development of materials required and quality reviewing solutions to assess impacts on patient care
