Patients are dynamic so why wouldn't your simulation reflect that?
Any simulation should reflect reality as closely as possible. This includes both visual and auditory cues from your monitoring equipment.

The use of live patients that can act and behave as a casualty would provide the learner "effortful" and deliberate practise.
Essential "meaningful" feedback
We strongly believe in student feedback after ever skill station or simulation. We video each session so that the student/team can observe their actual performance during the debrief. Our equipment from the mannikins to the monitoring equipment record every student action/interaction as well. We believe in deliberate practice and mastery learning.
Accurate assessment of CPR skills is critical in helping learners improve performance. Prior studies demonstrate that visual assessment of CPR quality is neither reliable nor accurate making it challenging for instructors to provide consistently meaningful feedback during CPR training. The use of visual and audio feedback manikins is essential for both the student and instructor

CPR training utilising performance student feedback manikins
Our ambulance mock up. This can be used with the immersion suite to simmulate care during transport.
Our classrooms are furnished with state of the art AV equipment, a range of anatomical models and even floor to ceiling whiteboard walls.

Teamwork, co-ordination and good communication all lead to better patient outcomes
FREC 4 students preparing for scenarios
These FREC 4 students are chosing the equipment they anticipate that they will need and filling their response kits prior to their trauma scenarios. As taught throughout the course, teamwork and good communication are essential.
Contextualised Simulation Training
Make your scenario training relevant to the student. Place them in a situation similar to their work environment. Include background noise, movement, equipment alarms, temperature even the smell.
The simulation suite
Variables to the environment in the sim suite all add to the contextual learning experience. Light, sound, temperature, location and even smell can be manipulated to enhance the simulated environment. We are able to record all student activity for use in the debrief sessions.
The resus bay
Within the sim suite we can provide in situ simulation depending upon client need. Whether prehospital or in hospital we can accomadate your needs to provide a meaningful simulated environment.
Monitoring in the simulated environment
Advanced simulation monitoring equipment can be used to track and log student action. This is an essential element when it comes to the post action debrief.
Anatomical Models in the Classroom
We have a full range of anatomical models in the classroom for our students to utilise during courses.
The Kitchen and Student Breakroom
We have a kitchen and breakroom for the students so that they can relax during down time.
We have several areas around the centre that can be utilised for various simulation. With WiFi throught the facility we are able to utilise our ALSi monitoring equipment anywhere on or around the premises.
The Airway Skills Lab
We are able to provide training for any level of provider from simple airway adjuncts to endotracheal intubation and surgical airway. Our staff have experience in RSI and surgical airway intervention in the field. Our highly experienced instructors teach procedures that we have actually performed in the field.

A nurse, Paramedic and Paramedic student are running a megacode on a simulated tube platform. The noise, movement of the trains and passengers all add as external stressors. During training we place a heavy emphasis on teamwork and communication.
