Menzies Institute Simulation Centre for Healthcare Education (SCHE) is an innovative resource and service centre that is specifically developed to facilitate simulation-based healthcare education and research with the further goal of improving staff and patient safety.
Central to the SCHE experience is the use of patient simulation as a method of teaching and learning. This approach allows participants to be immersed in a realistic, safe environment using interactive, problem-based, experiential scenarios where the opportunity to learn, rehearse, perfect and reflect on their individual and collective knowledge and skills is encouraged.
Using state-of-the art teaching and learning resources, a wide range of simulation technologies and a blended learning methodology through computer-drive patient manikins, the SCHE provides a host of training and professional development opportunities for all healthcare disciplines.
