Project Description

Curriculum-Led Simulation for doctors in training

This is one of four video chapters we produced for an NHS e-learning module about Curriculum-Led Simulation. The videos show safe methods and processes for training foundation doctors to prepare and carry out certain patient care procedures.

Sightline has been working with the NHS for the last 8 years developing 32 video-based e-learning modules for training NHS doctors and pharmacists. The modules are installed on the NHS Health Education England Educator Hub


We filmed for two days in a simulation suite at the NHS Hospital in Worthing. Trainee supervisors, a senior nurse, and trainee doctors, featured in the scenes.

We then edited the sequences for the four chapters, recorded and added the voice-over, and incorporated tables of text and graphic animations to support the learning messages. Finally, we added subtitles, using XML spread sheets. The subtitles can be turned on or off by the viewer.

We also created a slide show version of the videos (using video stills and the voice-over and dialogue transcript), for any viewers who are unable to play sound on their PC.


The videos and slide shows are installed on the NHS Health Education England’s Educator Hub. The hub is the central resource for e-learning across the UK and is used by thousands of healthcare professionals. Visit the Education Hub website page.
