Simulation at McMaster Children's Hospital
Our program supports simulation for learning, evaluation, and testing through a combination of scheduled sessions and just-in-time interventions.
Simulation activities are delivered throughout McMaster Children's Hospital by a diverse team of interprfessional educators.
We have an extensive inventory of task trainers, low fidelity mannequins and high-fidelity simulators.
Our high-fidelity simulators include human patient simulators, as well as a virtual simulator for vascular access training. We use infant, toddler, and child simulators from CAE and Laerdal Medical Canada.
Simulation is an essential part of our commitment to patient safety and quality of care.
We are fortunate to have physician champions across multiple specialities and disciplines at McMaster Children's Hospital.
