Clinical Skills Development Service


Research areas

Researchers within CSDS are involved in a wide variety of research projects. Some common themes include:

  1. Investigating the human factors, and cognitive and perceptual aspects of medical tasks, procedures, equipment and simulations.
  2. Investigating the efficacy of various educational techniques (including simulation, eLearning, and blended learning) in specific clinical contexts.

Each of our research projects generates new knowledge that can be used to improve or demonstrate the quality of the training offered by CSDS, and/or to improve patient safety more generally.
