Health Professions Education division is offering a two day workshop on Advanced Simulation in Health Professions Education.

About this event

This two day workshop enables the practical application of immersive simulation techniques across a variety of health professional settings. Students apply the theoretical basis, design, planning, implementation and evaluation processes related to advanced simulation settings.

The course runs over two consecutive days, Monday 14 and Tuesday 15 October 2019, from 8.30am to 4.30pm each day. Attendance for the entire duration is required.

Students will have the opportunity to: 

  • apply skills in course design to the advanced simulation setting
  • develop and apply simulation training in specific teaching and learning contexts
  • develop and use clinical scenarios for use in simulation training to assess competency of clinical skills
  • examine and practise communication skills required in simulated settings
  • discuss ethics, feasibility, limitations and practical implications of simulation equipment and training settings
  • design tools to assess and evaluate simulation training
  • discuss how to manage crises and incidents during simulation-based education workshop

This workshop is suitable for health professions educators from any healthcare discipline utilising simulation-based education to teach future or current healthcare professionals.

Due to the flipped classroom nature of the workshop, students are encouraged to complete online activities (webinars/videos/podcasts) prior to attending the face to face workshop. Attendance for the entire two days is required.

In order to participate fully it is suggested that each person bring their own laptop or tablet to assist in simulation scenario development.

Registration for the course can be made here. Payment details can be found here.

*Note: You will need to compete both the Eventbrite registration and a separate payment process to be registered for the course.
