St John of God Murdoch Hospital is offering students an exciting, new simulation program in which wards are closely replicated at Murdoch Training and Education Centre.

In collaboration with Murdoch University, the hospital hosted and facilitated a simulated clinical practice experience in which a range of health professionals including nursing and medical students from Curtin University, University of Notre Dame, Murdoch University, and Challenger Institute of Technology participated.

Learning and Organisational Development Manager Anissa Emeran says this simulated ward-based experience presents an exciting opportunity for students to put their professional, technical and leadership skills into practice.

“This is an invaluable simulation program which is being offered for the first time at St John of God Murdoch Hospital,” says Ms Emeran.

“It offers a real link between higher learning education providers and workplace experience, providing students with a real life look at what a working ward is about; complete with food, medications, monitors and everyday patient care activities.”

This project was possible due to funding made available by Health Workforce Australia, St John of God Murdoch Hospital and Murdoch University.
