HWA calls for funding tenders
HealthWorfroce Australia (HWA) has called for suitably qualified health service providers to submit proposals for capital, establishment and recurrent funding to provide clinical training through the use of simulated learning modalities in New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia.
The Simulated Learning Environments (SLE) program has been established with an aim to better train healthcare professionals through the use of simulation techniques. This work is being implemented under the National Partnership Agreement on Hospital and Health Workforce Reform (NPA), which includes a specific measure to expand the use of SLEs to contribute to increased clinical training capacity.
The main objectives of the SLE Project are to:
- Increase the use of simulated learning modalities in clinical training for entry level health professionals, postgraduates, VET sector and ongoing skills development training;
- Optimise clinical training experiences through the use of simulation techniques to develop clinical skills and competencies required by health professionals; and
- Increase access to simulated learning techniques for students in regional, rural and remote settings.
Calls for applications will close on 18 November.
