Asia Pacific Simulation in Nursing Education Conference: Producing better nurses through education

Nilai University College (Nilai UC) along with Medical Technologies Inc (METI) and Kinetik Edar Sdn Bhd is organising the first Asia Pacific Simulation in Nursing Education Conference. It will be held at Nilai UC’s campus located in the picturesque suburb of Putra Nilai on the 15th and 16th October 2011.

The objective of this conference is to provide an understanding and basic training to facilitators of Nursing Education on the integration of high fidelity patient simulation in basic and continuing Nursing Education. The training will be through interactive practical sessions using appropriately selected case scenarios specific to nursing interventions. The workshops will be conducted using a number of high fidelity patient simulators.

The 2-day program will draw on the experience and knowledge of medical and nurse education experts from various parts of the world. The distinguished key note speakers are
listed in the accompanying mailer.

At a time when Nursing Education is faced with issues in clinical learning, this conference aims to offer a platform to discuss and justify the facilitation of part of the clinical learning in the structured academic setting using the high fidelity simulator. This augmentative process is timely and necessary to achieve an outcome of knowledgeable, skilled and with right attitude nurse graduates.

“Nursing is a profession that is evolving continuously and getting more sophisticated. Nurses being mere assistants to doctors is a thing of the past. Nurses are health care professionals and much is demanded of them in the working environment. This conference is designed to equip nursing students with essential knowledge through the use of scenarios in facilitating clinical learning in the skills lab,” says Gnaneswari Subramaniam, Head of Nilai UC Nursing Faculty.

Nilai UC is one of the few higher learning institutions to be equipped with the high fidelity patient simulators. This simulator is able to replicate many bodily functions such as breathing patterns allowing student nurses to practice and hone their skills in a controlled environment and with real time response from the simulator.

“These nurses will be entering a high risk work environment, and will face life and death situations on a daily basis. The high fidelity patient simulator is a great way to prepare students for the many scenarios that can happen to a patient and continuous practice of this nature can help these nurses save precious seconds and avoid panic states,” explains Gnaneswari.

Nilai UC’s Nursing faculty was established in 2005 and is part of the School of Allied Health Sciences which also offers the Diploma in Medical laboratory Technology programme. It is one of the largest Schools at Nilai UC reflecting the growing popularity of these programmes amidst the booming healthcare industry.
