In an idea taken from Dr Jonathan Gatward’s site mobilesim, I modified his two minute action cards for our GP setting.
The idea behind the cards is to force team roles onto participants as a way to shake up what may be established hierarchies in the team. In our setting, the registrars look to the senior GPs to lead scenarios. By giving them a particular card, I hope to prepare them for that role in the team and provide some quick aid memories to that role.
This seemed to work very well and I will continue to use this to create some rotation of roles in the team.
