Simulation-based learning for healthcare providers via the:
Simulation preparation, coordination and expertise for faculty
The simulation staff at each site will help you manage and deliver your simulation session, freeing you up to focus your time and energy on teaching.
Accessible opportunities for learners to develop and practice advanced skills
In our simulated learning environments and skills lab, medical and healthcare learners develop and refine their skills while learning to work effectively and efficiently as part of interprofessional teams.
Advanced facilities and knowledgeable staff focused on healthcare professional learning
Our facilities welcome continuing professional development sessions and courses hosted by healthcare-oriented associations and companies. Faculty will help you provide experiential learning and competency maintenance opportunities to a broad spectrum of healthcare professionals.
The QEII Simulation Program facilitates simulation education via three facilities at the QEII Health Sciences Centre. Simulation and interprofessional learning are gold standards in healthcare education, essential to highly skilled providers and safe, quality healthcare.
With the creation of the simulation program, the Nova Scotia Health Authority consolidated the administration of the simulation sites, including governance, human resources and policies and procedures.
To operate as an integrated, accredited, simulation-based learning program that is learner-driven and innovative, and is based on best practice learning experiences delivered to a variety of disciplines and interprofessional healthcare providers.
To be Nova Scotia’s leader in simulation education and research.
Scholarly research and evaluation
Your support matters:
The QEII is the largest teaching and academic health sciences centre in Atlantic Canada. This is why the QEII Foundation is investing in simulation-based learning for the over 4,000 trainees using simulation facilities each year. By transforming our Simulation Centre, Skills Centre and Sim Bay into three robust facilities, we can create a thriving network of spaces that will improve safety where it counts -- in the operating rooms and at the bedside.
