Simulation gives individuals and/or multidisciplinary teams the opportunity to deliberately practice high-risk, low-frequency events or procedural tasks within a safe environment. Through simulation we can improve individual health professionals' skills, strengthen teamwork, integrate and learn from error.
The delivery of high quality healthcare requires not only highly trained individuals but an effective high functioning team. The RCH simulation program provides training opportunities for individuals/teams through the imitation of real events. Simulation training offers unique and powerful learning opportunities because of its participatory nature.
Listen to the podcast from the ABC Health Report on 'What the healthcare industry can learn from aviation' available on Learning HERO.
We believe that everyone participating in simulation is:
"What we have to learn to do, we learn by doing"
The Royal Children's Hospital (RCH) Simulation Program is designed to advance and support medical education for all healthcare providers (from undergraduate to graduate) at The Royal Children's Hospital. Watch the 2015 Good Friday Appeal video "Golly tours the Simulation Centre"
