Challenging existing practice: Growing technical officers' roles in simulation

Research output: Other contribution to conferencePresentation onlypeer-review


Growth of student nurse enrolments in Australia has increased the pressure on existing simulation infrastructure to a point where alternate methods of simulation delivery are being considered. An additional driver of change is the sessional nature of employment for those working in simulation in the tertiary sector. Strategies for change must consider the large cohort numbers, be cost effective and cognisant of a transient simulation staff. This presentation describes the findings from a project that piloted and evaluated the employment of technical officers to operate simulation equipment in a nursing program.
