What we do

What our collaborators say

We asked CSDS to take our paper-based training and create an online education and assessment tool. The team was motivated and enthusiastic with a real 'can-do' attitude.

Helen McConachy,
Access Improvement Service

The team consistently surprised me with their innovation, creativity and their ability to turn a simple idea into an interactive educational opportunity.

Nicole Thomas
Royal Children's Hospital

The professionalism and willingness of all staff to assist with any request makes delivering our course at CSDS such a pleasure.

Lauren Patten

The instructors were clear and knowledgeable, all content was relevant and sufficiently explained. Good time frame for the course and well ran.

Imelda Moore
Clinical Facilitator
Metro South Hospital and Health Service

While developing our online course, CSDS provided my team and I with exceptional support and professional expertise.

Jeanine Young

The CSDS team were responsive and worked effectively to a very high standard. I was very happy with how the relationship with us was managed.

Mark Horswill

Facilitators are fantastic! They explained everything fully and repeated whenever necessary. They were thorough in simulation to ensure participants had full understanding.

Jennifer Nash
Clinical Midwife
Torres and Cape Hospital and Health Service

Simulated scenarios in Advanced Life Support were great! Instructors work very hard and provide a great learning environment.

Laura Higgins
Clinical Nurse Consultant
Kowanyama Primary Health Care Centre

Excellent and great hands on course. Those teaching made me feel comfortable and answered questions. The real person used in the assessment was a surprise but made it more realistic.

Faumui Falaviena
Registered Nurse
The Prince Charles Hospital

Excellent simulation and facilitators. The scenarios were very realistic which prompted us to think and react in actual situation. Facilitators are very organised and encouraging.
