Academic Lead for Simulation/Programme Lead

In November 2017 as a lecturer from the child branch nursing team, Lee became involved with the planning and redevelopment of the clinical skills and simulation facilities at the University of Greenwich. Throughout this process, Lee successfully applied to become the Academic Lead for Simulation within the Faculty and was appointed to the role in 2019. The role provides the academic perspective and leadership for the redesign, build, and equipping of the Skills and Simulation centres on three sites at the University of Greenwich with a net Capital spend of £5million pounds. The facilities include immersive simulation in-patient wards; Virtual and Augmented reality teaching, learning and assessment opportunities; and part-task trainers to meet all skills-based components of undergraduate healthcare education while forging longterm partnerships with industry partners.

Currently, Lee is designing a three-year interprofessional curriculum to meet Paramedic, nursing and midwifery training requirements to assist with placement restrictions and CV19 sequelea. Within simulation-based education, Lee has specific interests in psychological safety, muscle memory, and pre-post debriefing. He leads on Healthcare simulation: managment, leadership, design and delivery and the Simulation-based education in healthcare modules while leading on the MSc Interprofessional Healthcare Simulation module commencing in 2022.

Lee's clinical teaching interests focus on acutely ill and injured paediatric patients and neonatal care at all levels. Leading sessions on the management of acutely ill and injured paediatric patients and neonatal special and intensive care to midwifery, paramedic, SCPHN, adult and child branch nurses at both undergraduate and CPD level. Lee also provides Breakaway and BLS mandatory training.

Lee's doctoral studies focus on psychology safety within healthcare simulation.
