Simulation Programmes

Simulation-based education sessions consist of pre-brief, scenarios, debrief and feedback using a variety of simulation platforms. Clinical divisions and departments in JurongHealth Campus typically engage in manikin-based simulation and part task skills training.

Manikin-based Simulation

Participants perform simultaneous assessment, management and resuscitation of critical patients and apply Crisis Resource Management (CRM) strategies to achieve positive teamwork and clinical outcomes.

Part Task Skills Training

Participants develop technical skills required to attain clinical competency through part task trainers.

The following clinical divisions/departments in JurongHealth have developed training curriculum encompassing manikin-based simulations and part task skills training:
