Simulation enthusiasts share ideas

On Thursday 2 June 2016, the WA Clinical Training Network held a Simulation Networking Evening, which was hosted by the Faculty of Health Sciences at Curtin. The event included presentations from experts in the field, tours of the nursing simulation suite and networking opportunities for those interested in simulation.

The informative and interesting presentations included:

Dr Alina Miranda, Curtin – ‘Developing an authentic simulation to enhance clinical and technical skills for Diagnostic Cytology Students’.

Dr Ruth Blackham, UWA/CTEC – ‘The future of surgical education: Proficiency-based progression in the simulated setting’.  

Dr Penny Moss, Curtin – ‘HWA-funded National Physiotherapy Simulation Project’.

Dr Janet Beilby, Curtin University – ‘Developing student communication skills through virtual learning environments’.

Dr Heidi Waldron, University of Notre Dame – ‘Clinical Deterioration videos: blended learning to support simulation’.

Curtin was delighted to host this event and it was pleasing to see so many people interested in the field of simulation-based education. Many ideas and collaborative partnerships were encouraged by this event. Curtin would like to acknowledge the WA Clinical Training Network, the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedicine and all those whose kind assistance made this event possible.
