Specialist facilities and learning techniques include:
The Health Simulation Centre, a simulation-based learning environment where students develop and consolidate clinical skills and knowledge in a variety of simulated healthcare settings including in-hospital and community environments. Students participate in activities and with technologies used in current practice, preparing them well for clinical practice and patient care
Students can book practice rooms in the Health Simulation Centre
Task trainers are used to learn and practice individual skills
Computerised manikins enable the replication of physical signs found in people presenting with alterations in health. High tech manikins enable students to learn about critical events such as anaphylaxis, post-partum haemorrhage and multi-trauma management
Ambulances for paramedicine students to practice real-life on-the-job scenarios
Actor-based simulation assists in developing communication and rapport building skills
Small classes and low student-to-patient ratios allow plenty of opportunity for students to develop their clinical skills and receive guidance from experienced staff.
