From 14 September—20 September, Mater Education will be joining organisations around the world to celebrate Healthcare Simulation Week. This week celebrates global professionals who use simulation to improve the safety, effectiveness, and efficiency of healthcare delivery.
Mater Education is a leading provider of healthcare education and training through simulation, with world-class clinical simulation programs, facilities and faculty. Our exclusive partnership with the internationally renowned Center for Medical Simulation (CMS) in Boston, USA, means our alumni have an exclusive level of access to the resources, skills, advice and experience of a team who are international leaders in the field of clinical simulation.
As our preferred methodology of practice, simulation is used across our range of courses and programs. From our career-entry courses to our professional and personal development programs for skilled professionals, simulation is an effective way to improve the delivery of patient care in a safe and realistic manner. Through our unique simulation service, OptiSim, we are able to develop, implement and evaluate simulation programs to help organisations improve their knowledge, skills and teamwork and improve all facets of healthcare delivery.
As we celebrate this week, we’ll be sharing a range of activities showcasing simulation throughout the week. Plus, keep an eye out for our traveling manikin as he makes his way across the state!
