ECU, through the Health Simulation Centre, is currently contracted to deliver High Fidelity Simulation Training on behalf of the Western Australian Department of Health.
The ECU Health Simulation Centre offers a series of high and medium fidelity courses including the Effective Management of Anaesthetic Crises and Advanced and Complex Medical Emergencies courses, which will be run in conjunction with the Australia and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) and the Australasian College of Emergency Medicine (ACEM) respectively.
EMAC focuses on the role of the anaesthetist as the team leader during an anaesthetic crisis. It also focuses on the interaction with the team around the anaesthetist in order to utilise skills and resources effectively.
The course has a strong focus on how a crisis in is recognised and subsequently managed. All participants have an opportunity to participate in management of a simulated emergency. Registered nurses who are beginner practitioners or who anticipate working in anaesthetic settings, PACU or recovery room nurses, nurses employed in day surgery centres, endoscopy units, imaging departments, emergency departments, catheter labs and laser centres would benefit from this course.
