2022 Workshops


Module C2: Being a simulation educator

This module covers basic principles of simulation with a particular focus on educational design for simulation scenarios, briefing and debriefing practices. We consider what it means to be a simulation educator. Even if you are mainly involved in technical aspects of simulation-based education (SBE), we considered it important to be exposed to the core elements of the work of a simulation educator. This module facilitates formation of a local community of practice by bringing participants together to discuss and practice SBE and training techniques.

Module S5: Simulated patient methodology

This module introduces some core facets of simulated patient (SP) methodology. The focus is on preparing SPs to work in healthcare simulations. The module describes a systematic approach to SP methodology. The module addresses issues at the level of the clinical training program (e.g. scenario development, alignment with curriculum, assessment etc) and at the level of the individual SP (e.g. casting, performance training etc). You are encouraged to think creatively about the breadth of content to which SPs can contribute to your own practice and to reflect on current approaches.

19 October 2022 – 9:00am to 4:30pm

Hosted by: University of Queensland, Rural Clinical Unit

This session is run in combination with Module S12: Simulation based interprofessional education (IPE)

  • Location: Bundaberg Rural Clinical Unit, Bundaberg hospital, Bourbong Street
  • Facilitator/s: Jules Bennet
  • Not open to external participants

Module S9: Debriefing in simulation

This module provides you with an opportunity to reflect on your debriefing practices. The online module revisits information on debriefing from Module C2 - Being a simulation educator. Here we explore conditions for effective debriefing. However, effective debriefing is much more than a set of skills and techniques. It is important to continue to reflect deeply on your values about learning and teaching. There will be an opportunity for you to share experiences of what works and what does not together with opportunities to practice and receive feedback on your debriefing. You will also have an opportunity to use different techniques to reflect on your debriefing practice and set goals for further development of your debriefing.

20 October 2022 – 9:00am to 4:30pm

Hosted by: University of Queensland, Rural Clinical Unit

This session is run in combination with Module S10: Developing scenarios

  • Location: Bundaberg Rural Clinical Unit, Bundaberg hospital, Bourbong Street
  • Facilitator/s: Jules Bennet
  • Not open to external participants

Module S10: Developing scenarios

Scenarios are a fundamental part of simulation-based education and require careful planning to enable the simulation to meet required learning outcomes. Scenarios can be difficult to develop and may require several iterations to optimally support learning. Factors that enable and constrain scenario development will also be discussed.

Module S12: Simulation based interprofessional education (IPE)

This module provides you with an opportunity to reflect on how simulation can support the development of interprofessional collaborative practice (IPCP). That is, the ways in which individuals from different professions, disciplines, craft groups and other service roles work together to provide the highest quality care for patients and their families. This module addresses ways in which simulation may support the development of IPCP. We explore some of the complex interprofessional language, we share what several people have to say about IPCP, we invite you to think about your own IPCP, what you do well, what you might improve. We consider evidence on the contribution of simulation to IPCP, learn from others about getting started in interprofessional simulation and then focus on developing your own practice. The e-learning revisits information from the core modules and many of the optional modules too.
