Earlier this month, Hills Mallee Fleurieu (HMF) MDRS students participated in a simulated trauma scenario at the Victor Harbor campus. The entire campus carpark was transformed into a bike accident. Students worked on the ‘patient’ in the carpark before they transferred them to the simulated accident and emergency training ward at the campus.
These are fantastic learning opportunities for students that are made possible by collaborative local partnerships and dedication of the HMF MDRS team.
This session was co-ordinated by Interprofessional Educator Sarah Dawson with Dr Bryan Goh (Clinical Educator), Anika Flett (Program Administrator) and Di Bolton (Student Support), in conjunction with South Australian Ambulance Service (SAAS), local ambulance volunteers and nursing students.
Sarah and Sandra Crockett will present on the trauma simulation at a national simulation conference in Adelaide later this year. Well done and a big thank you to all involved in the simulation and making it so successful.
