The NHET-Sim Program is an exciting initiative for healthcare simulation educators and technicians. NHET-Sim consists of e-learning and workshop activities across diverse simulation practices. The Program is open to individuals from all healthcare professional disciplines and workshops are scheduled in metropolitan and rural locations around Australia until June 2013.
NHET-Sim is now in its seventh month and a total of 2,340 simulation educators have registered for the Program. Participation in NHET-Sim is free to registrants and we encourage all ASSH members to participate. The Program provides a fantastic opportunity for entry level learning experiences for individuals new to simulation-based education. For those with experience in simulation-based education, NHET-Sim provides an opportunity to reflect on existing and future simulation practice.
Participants are able to choose two learning options – Stream A (e-learning and face-to-face workshops) or Stream B (e-learning and online tutorials). The entire NHET-Sim Program consists of approximately 24 hours of learning.
Core modules cover basic principles of simulation with a particular focus on educational design for simulation scenarios, briefing and debriefing practice. Electives offered range from simulator fundamentals, simulated patient methodology, patient focused simulations and virtual environments to program management. Participants who complete the NHET-Sim Program may receive credits for entry to Graduate Certificate level Programs.
The faculty of the NHET-Sim program consists of many ASSH members who deliver the tutorials and co-facilitate workshops.
The upcoming workshops include:
