“Turning teams of experts into expert teams”
The Melbourne Children’s Simulation Program is based at The Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne, Australia and was established in partnership with the University of Melbourne Department of Paediatrics. The simulation program is designed to advance and support medical education for all healthcare providers at the Royal Children’s Hospital.
Simulation gives individuals and/or multidisciplinary teams the opportunity to deliberately practice high-risk, low-frequency events or procedural tasks within a safe environment. Through simulation we can improve individual health professionals’ skills, strengthen teamwork, integrate and learn from error.
“What we have to learn to do, we learn by doing”
The delivery of high quality healthcare requires not only highly trained individuals but an effective high functioning team. The RCH simulation program provides training opportunities for individuals / teams through the imitation of real events. Simulation training offers unique and powerful learning opportunities because of its participatory nature.
MEPA courses are run through the RCH Anaesthetic Department Simulation Program.
