Reflexive Simulation – ‘Acute Stroke Patient Journey’

Reflexive Stroke Simulation

On Wednesday, 6 September 2017, CSDS took a major leap forward in healthcare simulation, with the world first Reflexive Simulation live stream event. This Reflexive Simulation event focused on an acute stroke patient’s journey through the Queensland Health system. Presenting at the Caboolture Hospital Emergency Department the stroke patient’s journey was followed through the current stroke pathway and included transfer via ambulance to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital to receive critical lifesaving treatment.

Reflexive Simulation is a tool designed to help understand how work is done by frontline staff. By capturing this event on film and live stream, it enables further high-grade analysis to occur and assist in finding greater efficiencies and improvements in healthcare. By analysing current systems and processes in this way, we are able to drive systems and safety improvements and inspire great change in healthcare.

The event was a huge success thanks to the help of the two hospitals and Queensland Ambulance Service. CSDS would like to thank the key simulation event members from Caboolture Hospital, Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital and the QAS. We could not have done it without your great enthusiasm and support.
