Mobile Simulation

Working in partnership with Local Health Districts, NSW Ambulance Service and Justice Health and Forensic Mental Health Network, the Health Education and Training Institute has been taking training to small health facilities and rural health staff across New South Wales.

The Mobile Simulation Centre (MSC) is uniquely positioned to support a wide range of clinical training requirements through a state of the art simulated clinical training facility provided directly to staff in isolated rural, remote and regional locations.

Originally developed and funded as a joint initiative of the Western NSW Local Health District and Sydney Local Health District's Centre for Education and Workforce Development, it provides a safe environment and educational resource for rural and remote clinicians to practice the management of emergency, obstetric, paediatric and medical situations.

Contained within a purpose built semi-trailer are a replicated emergency room and hospital ward, high fidelity manikins and staging, provide the ability to simulate many medical scenarios. The MSC uses high-end technology in a simulated environment to provide education for rural clinicians and enhance patient safety and care.

Working together the Sister Alison Bush AO Mobile Simulation Centre and NSW Rural Local Health Districts, Ambulance Service of NSW and Justice Health and Forensic Mental Health, rural, regional and nursing, medical and paramedic educators are building capacity to deliver training across the services.
