Department of Health, 2007)

Suitable for paediatricians, paediatric nurses, A&E doctors and nurses, recovery nurses, critical care doctors and nurses, anaesthetists and ODPs.


  • high-fidelity paediatric scenarios commonly encountered in the DGH
  • delegates perform in their own roles as part of a multidisciplinary team
  • structured debrief on both clinical and human factors, highlighting effective team skills
  • SCAMPS is about learning, not assessment.

  • recognise the critically sick or injured child
  • initiate appropriate immediate treatment
  • work as part of a team
  • maintain and enhance skills
  • be aware of issues around safeguarding children
  • communicate effectively with children and carer.

SCAMPS is facilitated by senior paediatric nurses, Paediatricians, ODPs and consultant anaesthetists from Broomfield and Southend hospitals
