SimEd aims to provide high-quality resources for Clinicians, Educators, Students, Technicians and Simulated Patients who are engaged in simulation-based education and training.
Supporting a community of practice in regional Victoria, Australia and Internationally, SimEd provides a platform for sharing ideas, knowledge and experience of all current and future practitioners. SimEd provides a hub for discussion around the technical and educational aspects of simulation in healthcare education and for students, supports just-in-time learning and the development of work-ready skills.
This is an opportunity for you and/or your organisation to promote and share the research or simulated learning activities going on in your part of the world, to help build this community of practice.
