Teaching the Teachers
The RRAPID course runs throughout the University of Leeds MBChB undergraduate curriculum. The principles not only encompass the management of the episode of acute illness but also encourages the students to determine how the episode could have been prevented and the longer term management objectives. Within the curriculum RRAPID encourages the students to learn the physiology of health and the pathophysiology of illness in the context of acutely ill patients. There is the opportunity to practice clinical assessment, communication skills, decision making, infection prevention, time management, patient safety and prescribing in the protected environment of simulated scenarios.
