Join us 13-19 September as we celebrate Healthcare Simulation Week 2021

To celebrate, we’ve put together a schedule of daily lunchtime simulation webinars, called #SIMinars. Sessions will run online, 12-12:30 pm, from Monday 13 September to Friday 17 September. These are free events and registration is open to all – see the full schedule below.

Healthcare Simulation Week is a global event that celebrates healthcare professionals who use simulation to improve the safety, effectiveness, and efficiency of healthcare delivery.

The week also raises awareness in communities nationwide about how healthcare simulation is leading us to safer, more knowledgeable patient care.

To accompany our daily #SIMinars during #HcSimWeek21 we’ll also be releasing a series of posts on this blog.

Monday 13 September 2021, 12-12:30pm
Presented by Belinda Faulkner, Nursing Director CSDS; Luke Wainwright, Assistant Nursing Director CSDS; Davin Arthur, Simulation Educator CSDS.

To open Healthcare Simulation Week 2021, CSDS Nursing Director, Belinda Faulkner, will introduce the celebrations and some exciting achievements we’ve had over the past year.

Luke and Davin will discuss our redesigned Simulation Education Program — why we invested in its redevelopment.

#SIMinar 2: Moulage techniques with Georg, featuring Bill’s burns

Tuesday 14 September 2021, 12-12:30pm
Presented by Georg Auer, Simulation Coordinator; Bill Nancarrow, Simulation Assistant.

Back by popular demand, moulage expert, Georg will demonstrate more moulage tips and tricks. This year’s feature is burns presented by Bill Nancarrow, our Simulation Assistant. Tune in to learn some techniques and ask questions or let us know if you have your own tips and tricks.

#SIMinar 3: Queensland Trauma Education (QTE): Challenges for state-based training

Wednesday 15 September 2021, 12-12:30pm
Presented by Kimberly Ballinger, Simulation Educator.

Kimberly introduces Queensland Trauma Education and how the new statewide education program sought out answers to the complex questions of:

  • How to deliver high quality, consistent, and evidence based trauma education when facing the challenges of distance in a state as large as Queensland?
  • How to develop a flexible trauma educational resources to be accessed by multidisciplinary pre-hospital and hospital clinicians who care for, educate, and promote trauma care?

#SIMinar 4: Herston Biofabrication Institute’s (HBI) 3D printed simulation models

Thursday 16 September 2021, 12-12:45pm
Presented by Mathilde Desselle, General Manager, HBI and Biomedical Engineer, Biofabrication and Medical Devices; Dr Michael Wagels, Clinical Director, HBI.

Join CSDS partners, the Herston Biofabrication Institute’s, Mathilde Desselle and Dr Michael Wagels, for a presentation on 3D printed simulation models. Mathilde will present an overview of 3D printed simulation models and speak to issues such as evaluation and regulatory requirements, with some real examples to provide context. Michael will present an overview of the simulation models that HBI have developed or are currently developing.

#SIMinar 5: Context matters: the complexity of supporting both military and civilian healthcare simulation

Friday 17 September 2021, 12-12:30pm
Presented by Major Paul Krohn, ICU Nurse and CSDS Fellow; Dr Mia McLanders, Human Factors Research and Evaluation Lead.

Major Paul Krohn straddles two worlds in simulation-based education, training both QLD Health clinicians and Australian Defence Force clinicians. Watch Mia and Paul discuss the similarities and differences between civilians and army personnel on key issues such as interdisciplinary team training, suspension of disbelief, engagement (“buy-in”), and language.
