- 6 points
Availability Location Mode Semester 2 UWA (Perth) Face to face
- This unit enables the application of low and high-fidelity simulation techniques in a variety of health professional settings. Students apply the theoretical basis, design, planning, implementation and evaluation processes related to advanced simulation settings.
- Students are able to (1) apply skills in course design to the advanced simulation setting; (2) develop and apply simulation training in specific teaching and learning contexts; (3) develop and use clinical scenarios for use in simulation training to assess competency of clinical skills; (4) examine and practise communication skills required in simulated settings; (5) discuss ethics, feasibility, limitations and practical implications of simulation equipment and training settings; (6) design tools to assess and evaluate simulation training; (7) discuss how to manage crises and incidents during simulated learning settings; and (8) plan how to conduct educational research related to simulation training.
- Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) written assignment; (2) direct observation; and (3) reflective essay. Further information is available in the unit outline.
