Mobile Simulation Centre

In late 2014, the HNE Simulation Centre used  HETI's Sister Alison Bush AO Mobile Simulation Centre (housed inside a 19-metre semi-trailer) to deliver a series of courses designed to teach skills essential to safe clinical practice to staff in rural and remote areas.  Local teams from Gloucester, Moree, Glen Innes and Scone practiced their teamwork skills whilst looking after 'patients' suffering from conditions like asthma and poisoning or envenomation.
