Simulation in Learning and Teaching

Teaching demonstration in Adelaide Health Simulation

Simulation in clinical teaching and learning has been rapidly developing as a method to provide safe and effective learning environments for students to learn vital skills in a low risk setting. Students can practice and hone their theoretical skills in a controlled environment, experiencing the intense interactions and encounters associated in the clinical setting, effectively testing their personal response and ability to regulate to the environment – without compromising patient safety.
