International experts in simulated healthcare train at the San





















International experts in simulated healthcare scenarios join San specialist Dr Adam Osomanski for a training workshop at the San Clinical Education Centre on Thursday 15 May.


The workshop ‘Simulation at work’ using the mannequin 'San's SimMan 3G' was presented by South Carolina’s leaders in simulation training, Dr John Schaefer and Dr Carol Lynn Simmons.


San Doctors and Nurses participated in programmed scenarios including birthing experiences and resuscitation which simulated human reactions and required a range of technical medical skills.


The staff involved in the workshop are trainers of medical students at the Sydney Adventist Hospital Clinical School of The University of Sydney and nursing students at Avondale College of Higher Education.


SimMan 3G is silicon latex and is the latest generation of simulation mannequins. It simulates human responses and takes breaths, blinks, bleeds, sweats and talks and is designed to acclimatise students to working on their own after completing their training.


“Simulation based learning is vital for students,” said San Anaesthetist Dr Osomanski.


“It gives them the opportunity to acquire, integrate and consolidate knowledge and skills using realistic patient scenarios.


“Practice, repetition and reflection in a safe learning environment will lead to better patient care.”
