Module overview

This 20 credit module forms one part of the Post Graduate Certificate in Multidisciplinary Healthcare Simulation. The aims of this module are:

To provide you with:

  • An understanding of the process for creating an effect scenario that can be used in simulation training.
  • Knowledge of the available technologies and how to ‘drive’ the technology. 

Additionally you will explore all roles within the simulation faculty and how they contribute to the fidelity of multidisciplinary health care simulation as well as the principles of debriefing a simulation scenario.

Credits
