Course Development

Course Management

Does your department, college, or organisation have a new training idea, but need some assistance to get it started?

Our multi-professional team has considerable experience with all aspects of course design and coordination, having implemented numerous tailor-made courses for a wide range of clients, including clinicians, university, hospital, government and corporate groups. Our outcomes are consistently excellent.

We can assist you to design, develop and run your training activity, providing as little or as much support as you require.

Course Management may include any of the following services, tailored exactly to your requirements:

  • Training needs analysis for your target audience

  • Consultancy with senior SCSSC staff providing expert educational advice

  • Curriculum design and assistance with development of training materials

  • Use of the SCSSC facility

  • Use of a wide range of training technologies

  • Networking with instructors

  • Complete event management including marketing, client liaison, bookings, budgets and financial management, on-day-of coordination and catering

  • Course administration including accreditation for CPD points with relevant bodies, management of a participant database, course evaluation and reports

Research and Quality Improvement

Replicating real health environments, the Sydney Clinical Skills and Simulation Centre provides a safe and controllable setting for research.  ​Advanced audio-visual technologies enable recording of simulations with event marking and matrix coding. We provide advice on simulator capabilities, features and measurement tools, as well as providing technical support and scenario design services.


In-situ simulation can support systems and quality improvement activities through the identification of roadblocks and process issues. Interventions and proposed changes can be assessed and modified prior to introduction. These translational simulation activities support patient care improvement.  Our staff have experience in designing and implementing translational simulation.​

Usability Testing

It can be challenging to completely foresee or understand how devices will perform in real world settings.  Mistakes can prove costly.  The  Sydney Clinical Skills and Simulation Centre can replicate a variety of healthcare settings, teams and events for the evaluation of medical devices and equipment.  Advanced audiovisual capabilities record the simulated events for later review.  Feedback from real clinicians in device use in real settings without patient risk is invaluable in the development process.

New, redeveloped or enhanced facilities can also benefit from simulated process testing in the development process, and staff orientation before going live. The Simulation Centre has expertise in the development, implementation and review of these testing and orientation processes.
