Simulation is a practice learning technique used at Edge Hill University to enhance the confidence and skills of our Health and Social Care students. It is a technique which aims to replicate ‘real-life’ patient scenarios, providing a safe space in which students can work together and demonstrate their skills in an immersive and controlled environment.

Simulation and Skills Education will be soon based within a brand new Clinical Skills and Simulation Centre (formally the LINC building) at our Ormskirk Campus, alongside facilities at Alder Hey’s Institute in the Park and St James’ in Manchester City Centre. You can learn more about our Simulation and Skills Education facilities, below:

Healthcare Simulation Week was created to celebrate the work of global professionals who use simulation and to raise awareness nationwide about how healthcare simulation is leading to safer patient care.

We’ll be showcasing exactly how we use simulation here at Edge Hill University this week on our social media channels, and we’ll also be introducing you to some of our fantastic members of staff (human and manikin!) so make sure to keep your eyes peeled…

You can follow along with Healthcare Simulation Week at Edge Hill University on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels linked below. And don’t forget to check out the full Healthcare Simulation Week campaign too, by following @HcSimWeek and #HcSimWeek19 on Twitter!
