The Paramedic department, in conjunction with Beth Spencer, have been taking advantage of some of the excellent capabilities the EHU Tech Hub has to offer by 3D Printing fake tablets, capsules medications and a crico trainer.
These allow for more authentic and realistic simulations to be prepare students for the types of environments and situations they may be exposed to when qualified, and these additions to our simulated and immersive training has allowed for higher fidelity scenarios.
The potential for 3D printing is virtually limitless and as such further plans to improve simulated practice is underway.
