Faculty Development Program in Simulation

The Issues

Underuse of Simulators

Research has shown that most simulators (80%) have spare capacity for more training.

Maintenance of Competence

Training and availability of faculty trained in simulation is a key constraint. Also, with a certain turnover in most organisations it is a challenge to continously maintain the necessary competence in simulation within an organisation.

A Lack of Standards

As simulation is still fairly new in healthcare education, few or no standards are deployed for measuring performance and learning outcomes. Also, as organisations continue to invest in simulation programs, there is a growing need to demonstrate the value of simulation to key stakeholders.

How can NESTLED help?

  • Supports your faculty in developing and implementing a simulation program at your workplace.

  • Supports you in developing an enhanced and improved learning environment for your students or colleagues.

  • Provides the practical tools you need to integrate simulation into your curriculum or training program.

  • Helps in developing and enhancing essential skills such as: Preparing for a simulation, pre-briefing, running a scenario, and conducting a simple but powerful debriefing.
