Professor Jane Perry, Dean of the School of Health, Sport and Bioscience, said,
This latest success helps to advance the plans for the new hospital and primary care training hub and support placement activity for students in HSB. Students will follow a full holistic patient journey across health and social care, preparing them to be flexible and responsive in a changing healthcare arena."
The inter-professional simulation suite is equipped with augmented and virtual reality equipment and virtual placement software.
Earlier this year, UEL was the first university in Europe to install a simulation mannequin, SimMan 3G. The life-like mannequin is an advanced simulator, able to display neurological as well as physiological symptoms. It gives students, nurses and trauma specialists, among others, the chance to deal with high-pressure situations in a safe environment.
