The Australian Nursing Federation is offering a series of online 3-D clinical simulations for nurses.
Federal Education Officer Jodie Davis said the new website, launched today demonstrates the ANF’s ongoing commitment to the continuing education of Australia’s nurses and midwives.
“This innovative website offers 3D simulated learning for clinical procedures,” Ms Davis explained.
“Each module teaches a different procedure through an interactive simulation, accompanied by a step-by-step text with hyperlinks, a video demonstration, a 3D model of the anatomy encountered during the procedure and a quiz.
“The simulation is also available in test mode so the nurse or midwife can check their competence.
“Scores and time taken to complete each module is stored in a logbook on the website for easy transference to the CPE professional development portfolio.”
There are a total of 32 modules including:
- Venous Cannulation
- Perform and interpret an ECG
- Assist with minor surgical procedures
- Paediatric assessment (infant)
- Perform suture removal
- Administer nebuliser treatment and assess peakflow
- Perform capillary puncture and haematology testing
- Urinary Bladder catheterisation
- Nasogastric tube
- Administer intramuscular injections
- Electrocardiogram (ECG) – 12 Lead
On completion of each module you receive a Simulation Summary Report which can be printed out.
