The Simulation Centre is a key provider of training for staff across the Northern Sydney Local Health District in the following areas:
Deteriorating patient: The SCSSC provides oversight of training programs that comply with the NSQHCS Standard 8 (management of the deteriorating patient). This includes Tier 2 face to face DETECT, ALS for medical officers, Resus4Kids, inter-professional tier 3 emergency response team training (paediatric and adult) and train the trainer programs, relevant to these.
Interprofessional communication training for teams, supervisors and managers including Speak Up assertiveness training and Conversations in Clinical Supervision. These programs use faculty actors to rehearse difficult conversations using communication scripts and are contextualised to meet learner requirements.
Faculty development for people who provide ward based and simulation based training including 1UP ward based procedural skills training for medical officers.
Consultation and technical support to clinical teams and services. The SCSSC has a role in supporting unit based education, providing advice and equipment for local training. This can be valuable in identifying system, process, layout and equipment issues. With a particular focus on patient safety, teamwork, human factors and system design, the centre staff can also work with your unit to develop bespoke training solutions. We have substantial experience in securing competitive education grants and can partner with you in this process.
