IMED5806 Simulation and Interprofessional Learning in Health Professions Education
- 6 points
|Semester 1||UWA (Perth)||Face to face|
- This unit explores the use of simulation as a means of learning professional, clinical and interprofessional facilitation skills in the health professions. Students examine the theoretical basis, design, planning, implementation and evaluation processes related to the use of simulation.
- Students are able to (1) examine the theoretical basis underlying the use of simulation techniques in health professions education; (2) discuss the principles, rationale, barriers and facilitators to interprofessional learning/education and simulation; (3) identify from current educational literature a range of simulation based models for teaching professional and clinical skills in simulated learning environments; (4) describe approaches to establishing faculty development in the area of IPL and how to embed interprofessional education into a curriculum; and (5) demonstrate how to plan and design an effective interprofessional simulation-based learning events using the six phases of simulation.
- Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) interprofessional conversation assignment; (2) simulation phases assignment; and (3) interprofessional simulation-based learning event plan. Further information is available in the unit outline.
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.

- Unit Outline
- The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
- All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
- Books and other material wherever listed may be subject to change. Book lists relating to 'Preliminary reading', 'Recommended reading' and 'Textbooks' are, in most cases, available at the University Co-operative Bookshop (from early January) and appropriate administrative offices for students to consult. Where texts are listed in the unit description above, an asterisk (*) indicates that the book is available in paperback.
