Learning Sessions

The Centre for Interprofessional Clinical Simulation Learning offers a facility for clinical educators, learners and practicing professionals to train in an environment that reflects the health care needs of Victoria and the Island Health region where access, service availability, priority, and cost are important factors.

Further, an interprofessional education model and a team-based, patient-centred care approach are identified as best practices for regions such as ours where long distances between health centres, many remote communities, and a large aging population impact service delivery and quality expectations for a range of health professionals.

Learning sessions are focused on increasingly complex patient needs, changing practice technologies, diverse practise settings and professional specialization.

We are aligned with the provincial model and network defined by the BC Simulation Task Force.
