Canterbury Collaborative Simulation Interest Group (CCSIG)

Simulation has been defined as any teaching activity in which the real life situation is “simulated”.  Simulation is an alternative to real patient involvement. Simulation may involve the use of actors, learners, manikins or part trainers to mimic the real life situation (Dent & Harden, 2005).

The Canterbury Collaborative Simulation Interest Group is working to:

  • facilitate collaboration between clinical simulation centres and activities in Canterbury

  • promote collaboration and networking of health professionals interested in simulation learning

  • facilitate the sharing of ideas and best practice in simulation learning

  • facilitate a minimum of 4 open topic simulation half days/per annum  

  • facilitate a simulation technician support group

The CCSIG Governance Group will arrange four open topic meetings per year and contents published on this site:
