ACT region is offering funding for a number of educators to be trained in the use of Mask Ed simulation

MASK-ED™ (KRS simulation) is an innovative high fidelity simulation technique which involves the use of silicone props, including masks, torsos, hands and feet. The props are worn over the informed educator to mask them. The hidden educator then transforms into a character/ person with a history/story which is relevant to the learning experience. The character serves as a platform for teaching. KRS stands for knowledgeable, realistic and spontaneous simulation

This 2 day workshop will take place in Canberra on 18th and 19th May
Application for funding through an expression of interest

Please complete you expression of interest here: Mask Ed EOI Feb 2016

EOI closes on Friday 18th March 2016
Applicants will be informed by Wednesday 30th March

As you may be aware, the Department of Health has confirmed that the ACT Region ICTN will not receive any further funding past the current contract period, June 2016.

We would like to reassure members that:

  • All current bookings of simulated equipment items will be honoured
  • Training activities listed in the events calendar will continue as advertised

The future direction of the SLE program and the lending library are currently being investigated. Updates will be posted on the ICTN’s website when available

Any queries please contact us.

Moulage (French: casting/moulding) is the art of applying mock injuries for the purpose of training

The SLE Team is offering a limited number of funded places for the following training:

Basic Moulage Techniques workshop: 7th & 8th March 2016 at ANU Clinical Skills Unit
The basic course is a 2 day workshop that covers the fundamentals of moulage. It includes the use of theatrical make up to portray bruising and pallor, wounds and burns as well as the application of more advanced techniques and materials such as Effects Gel, the application of pre-made wound pieces and the use of stage blood and associated products. 

There will also be a session on creating ad hoc moulage with some very basic ingredients that will allow you to simply and effectively enhance your training scenarios.
Includes a certificate of attendance with course contact hours shown for your Professional Development requirements.

Please complete the EOI by 19th February if you would like to be considered for this training Moulage EOI Feb 2016

The ACT Region Integrated Clinical Training Network (ICTN) Simulated Learning team aims to support clinicians and educators to use simulation based education methods and technologies that enable staff and students to provide excellent patient care.

We would like your assistance to identify training priorities for the use of simulation in teaching and learning in 2016.
The priority areas identified will inform simulation based education and training developed and delivered by the ICTN.
