Turner Warwick Prize Award for ADEPT Fellow
Waves of congratulations to Dr James Irvine are still echoing amongst medical education colleagues in NIMDTA and beyond as we delight in his recent success of receiving the Turner Warwick Prize for the Northern Ireland region with the lecture entitled: “Reducing door to needle time through simulation-based education.”
Dr Anita E. Smyth, NIMDTA Director of Hospital Specialty Training and Professional Development said:
“We are delighted that Dr James Irvine (ST5 Geriatric Medicine), has achieved this prestigious award. James was an NIMDTA ADEPT Clinical Leadership Fellow during the training year 2022-2023, based in the Ulster Hospital, SEHSCT. James led a project developing interprofessional simulation-based education (SBE) in the management of hyperacute stroke presentations, in collaboration with his supervisors, Dr Mark Bowman and Dr Kevin Dynan. It is wonderful to hear of his continuing success.
From August 2023, James is continuing to develop training opportunities in SBE, as a SUCCEED Fellow in the School of Medicine. At the recent NIMDTA/QUB/UU Clinical Education Day, along with other colleagues, James contributed to the delivery of a workshop titled: ‘How to Embed Simulation Based Education within a training programme'. This work outside of his clinical commitments is testament to his passion to enhance high quality healthcare with a particular interest in Stroke Medicine and Clinical Education.
We look forward to further opportunities to work with Dr Irvine and wish him every success!”
