Skills lab PUMHSW was established in 2012 Skills lab was designed to provide immersive learning experiences for healthcare practitioners and students.
A simulation center, which consist of realistic looking clinical sim lab rooms, manikins and equipment, allow learners to practice and development clinical expertise without any risk of patient harm.
Learners apply their theoretical knowledge in carefully created hands-on scenarios that mimic various clinical situations at skill lab.
These scenarios range in complexity and/or skill level.
For example, healthcare simulation may be used for undergraduate medical and nursing schools, internships, residencies and ongoing training for qualified practitioners.
Some examples of simulation scenarios include asthma attacks in adult and pediatric patients, GI bleed, labor and delivery complications, cardiac arrest and newborn hypoxia. In addition, medical simulation provides a unique opportunity for hospital staff and students to practice team communication, interdisciplinary care and patient safety.
