Celebrate Health Care Simulation Week: September 12-16, 2022


Healthcare Simulation Week 2022
We celebrate Health Care Simulation Week and the success of the Northern Clinical Simulation program.

Join the Northern Clinical Simulation team as we celebrate Health Care Simulation Week from September 12-16, 2022!

This special week:

  • Recognizes professionals who use simulation to improve the safety, effectiveness, and efficiency of health care services.
  • Recognizes simulation educators and highlights the importance of clinical simulation.
  • Creates awareness around the impact simulation plays in health care, such as leading to safer, more knowledgeable patient care.

Share your clinical simulation experience

We’re inviting nursing students, medical students, and Northern Health medical staff to share how clinical simulation has impacted their clinical knowledge or skills! Send an email to SimulationTeam@northernhealth.ca, detailing your experience. Submissions may be shared in future clinical simulation communications.

We look forward to celebrating Health Care Simulation Week along with everyone who has made the Northern Clinical Simulation program such a huge success.

Questions? Visit the Clinical Simulation page to find out more about what clinical simulation is and how it’s used across Northern Health.

In recent years, significant support from the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation, Fort St. John Hospital Foundation, and their donors has allowed the Northern Clinical Simulation program to buy newborn, one-year-old (Baby), and 10-year-old (Junior) simulators that resemble real life patients. This has made it possible for health care professionals to safely practice providing care to this age group; however, more help is needed: Donate today.
