This useful document provides a pathway that those that are interested can follow to up-skill in simulation and debriefing.
Look forward to more simulation resources being made available – and perhaps a repository of NZ rural cases and scenarios that we can contribute to and access.
The Rural Simulation Faculty vision is of a pool of inter-professional faculty with expertise around simulation-based education (SBE) and debriefing who can all contribute to all rural simulation courses as needed. The group of rural courses should be strategically planned each year by the whole group to maximise value and demand. Each course will have designated course directors or leaders but can expect assistance from all faculty group members as available.
- Establish a broad interprofessional rural group of SBE faculty across NZ.
- Describe a common pathway for rural faculty to be credentialled as course providers through a shared understanding and experience of SBE
- Maintenance and development of simulation expertise through feedback, mentoring and sharing of learning resources
- Develop opportunities for learning, developing and collaborating using simulation-based education.
- Design interprofessional educational courses for rural health care workers.
- Research and evaluation of rural SBE
Rural simulation faculty development stream:
- Open for all doctors, GP’s, nurses, paramedics, allied health and midwives involved in rural health care at all levels of training.
- Faculty development stream comprises 7 components within three tiers, with stepwise progression through.
- Participation is purely voluntary and is expected to be self directed
