Emma Rimmer is one of our Practice Education Lecturers and also Social Work Lead for Simulation here at Edge Hill University. We recently caught up with Emma to find out exactly what the future holds in terms of Social Work Simulation.
‘The Integrated Masters in Nursing and Social Work programme is planning a simulation exercise for our new third year students in the PUP3260 (Enhancing Confidence and Capability for Integrated Practice).
Without giving too much away, my colleague, John Morgan and I wanted to create a simulated scenario for our students across both the Nursing and Social Work profession, and therefore we are going to simulate a scenario in the new Clinical Skills and Simulation Centre suite that will test our students to ensure that they are developing skills in all areas of assessing, treating, and managing a patients health and social care needs.
We are hoping that this simulation day will prepare our students for their integrated placement in the fourth year of their programme.’
