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
October 12th -15th - Clinical Skills Unit, Christchurch Hospital, Christchruch.
Canterbury District Health Board are proud to offer this internationally recognised, 4 day simulation Instructor course, working in partnership with the Boston based Centre for Medical Simulation (CMS). The course is designed for simulation educators who seek to create high-quality healthcare simulation programs.
This course immerses healthcare simulation instructors in a multi-method course wherein participants learn how to teach clinical, behavioural, and cognitive skills through simulation. It draws from the disciplines of aviation, healthcare, psychology, experiential learning, and organizational behaviour. Participants explore simulator-based teaching methods applicable across the healthcare education spectrum, including undergraduate and graduate medical, nursing and allied health domains. The daily formats vary and include; simulation scenarios, lectures, small and large group discussions, and practical exercises with feedback.
REGISTRATION is on a first pay basis with an interprofessioanl focus.
