Opened in 1997, the Simulation and Skills Centre is a purpose-designed facility suitable for the simulation needs of a wide range of healthcare professionals, with the ability to provide point of care training.
Our goal is to improve patient safety through simulation-based education and research.
The centre is located on Level 9 of the Clinical Services Block (purple lifts) at Wellington Regional Hospital.
The centre has eight rooms which include:
- Three specialist simulation rooms
- Two presentation / debriefing rooms
- Recovery / ED area
- Air ambulance simulator
- Other rooms that are used for a variety of skills-based training (e.g. CPR, IV and midwifery)
