Intensive care training
Dr Bronwyn Gavine (2018, DPhil Clinical Neurosciences) trained and worked as a doctor in South Africa before moving to Oxford to pursue a Masters, and now DPhil, in Clinical Neurosciences. In South Africa, she gained extensive experience in critical care and providing care in resource-constrained environments.
She is applying this expertise to her work the Oxford Simulation, Training and Research (OxSTaR) centre. Her role involves training healthcare workers redeployed to intensive care, and training newly graduated medical students who are working on the wards. She is also involved in more broader training in the safe use of personal protective equipment, as well as resuscitation and airway management. Additionally, Bronwyn is helping to rapidly update and disseminate clinical guidelines at this challenging time for the NHS. This training and education is done both in person via simulation, as well as via online resources, which are centrally hosted on the centre’s website and available to all healthcare workers (for those within the trust and more broadly in the UK) to access and use as needed.
