New name for Sim Man
- Credit: Archant
A state-of-the-art simulation man, based at the James Paget University Hospitals (JPUH) in Gorleston, has been given a name thanks to some creative input from hospital staff.
The Name the Sim Man! competition attracted dozens of submissions from across the trust.
Competition was tough but deputy director Julia Hunt made the final call, choosing clinical educator Karen Thom and her submission, Mac M.E.Better.
Ms Thom was presented with a £50 Amazon gift voucher, donated by the postgraduate team at the University of East Anglia.
Other names submitted to the competition included TOM (Teaching Open Minds), JosePH and Reece Suss.

Mac (M.E.Better) is based in the JPUH's new simulation suite, which was purchased and built earlier this year through the jointly funded generosity of the Dinwoodie Settlement, Norwich Medical School (UEA), Education and Practice Development and JPUH Charitable Funds.
The simulation experience offers staff and students the unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience in an artificial environment where they are required to think and act quickly to treat the 'patient', supporting their learning with a practical focus.
