Provides training to Alberta Health Services staff using theatrical techniques, including actors and patient simulators (computerized mannequins), to recreate realistic scenarios they could expect to encounter in the real world.
Simulation is a training technique which enables learners to practice and master individual and team skills to improve patient safety and enhance the quality of care.
With simulation a range of scenarios can be practiced from road traumas, to situations in hospital or home care settings. It supports all types of learning from developing or enhancing technical skills to working as a member of a team to improving communication skills. Simulation also offers the opportunity to assess individuals within a safe environment without risk to the patient.
The eSIM program supports training for physicians and staff involved in the delivery of care to patients in Alberta using 2 primary services:
- Simulation Practice Readiness Centres (PRCs)
These training facilities are designed and equipped to recreate virtually any care environment and are located at multiple sites in Alberta
- Mobile Simulation
Specialized vehicles and a variety of portable equipment is used to support educators who do not have access to a PRC.
