Celebrate Health Care Simulation Week: September 18-22


Healthcare simulation week
We celebrate Health Care Simulation week and invite the public to UHNBC to learn more about this important work.

Join the Northern Clinical Simulation team as we celebrate Health Care Simulation Week from September 18-22, 2023! 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!

CPR challenge and open house

Northern Clinical Simulation invites you to join them at UHNBC simulation center for a CPR Challenge. The event is September 20, 2023, from 8:30 am to 12 pm in the Simulation Centre. The winner of the CPR challenge will receive a hamper of simulation goodies and their name will be displayed on the Winner’s Plaque in the simulation centre.

Along with the CPR Challenge, there will be an open house with the simulators of all age groups and complexities on display.

Come visit the simulation centre to showcase your skills and witness futuristic technology!

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

Last year, significant support from the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation and its donors has allowed the Northern Clinical Simulation program to buy SimMan 3G Plus, which resembles a real-life patient. 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.
