SimTecT 2008 - Healthcare Simulation Conference - Brisbane, Australia
Posted by Kiki at 9:31AM
We've just come back from sunny Brisbane and a week of work with some of the
Asia Pacific region's leading clinical skills educators. The SimTecT 2008
Healthcare Simulation Conference is the region's premier annual medical
simulation conference and a great opportunity to catch up with people.
As always, it's great to hear positive feedback about the injection training
pads, but the comments on the latest clinical tutor software were a pleasant
surprise. It's good to see that all the thought and collaboration has paid off.
The best part for me, was getting people to practise on the pads, in
particular seeing the joy on someone's face as they hit a vein and draw blood
successfully - especially with the catheters (cannulas).
It's funny, even with years of experience, educators still seem to get as much
of a kick out of hitting a vein as students do. Why do you think that is?
