FUTURE VISION AND PLANNING FOR THE GEORGE BROWN COLLEGE SIMULATION CENTRE: RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

Cory Ross, Michael Eliadis

Abstract


Heavy workloads create challenges when students are in their practice settings.
Many health care practitioners state a lack time to adequately mentor and supervise student activities and fear students not being adequately prepared for the busy units. Students are prohibited from practicing most psychomotor skills on clients without a prior demonstrated level of proficiency and application of knowledge. As client safety is never jeopardized, students’ exposure to learning opportunities, efficacy, and sense of team is challenged within the status quo. The effects of diminished work integrated learning environments for all College students of different disciplines are also being felt. It is time to revisit the use of simulation education in a holistic manner.
