Pioneering nursing education using high fidelity Patient Simulators

The School of Nursing was the first educational institution to use high fidelity Human Patient Simulator (HPS) in nursing education in the late 90s. The HPS is an integral part of all nursing therapeutics subjects and simulated clinical experiences are provided for nursing students to meet the future challenges in real life settings. The HPS in various nursing laboratories ranges from an infant, a child to full size manikins, with full audio-video recording functions that enable debriefing and reviewing of students’ performances.

The Dorothy Wong Intensive Care Laboratory, which was renovated in 2017, is a fully furnished intensive care unit with state-of-the-art facilities. The re-development was supported by the Large Equipment Fund for Teaching to facilitate innovative student learning. With the support of our clinical experts and the HPS, our students are able to practise safely and learn how to care critically ill patients by using the scenario-based learning system. The HPS allows students to develop clinical reasoning ability, leadership, communication, and psychomotor skills that are core competencies for nurses.

The HPS also supports the development of various research projects, such as projects related to interdisciplinary education.
