Kim Oates Australian Paediatric Simulation Centre

The Kim Oates Australian Paediatric Simulation Centre, at The Children's Hospital at Westmead, is a unique facility designed to train staff in the most cutting-edge treatments for sick children, especially in emergency scenarios.

The treatment of a critically ill child requires a skill set that can only come from hands-on, real time experience. This kind of experience can't easily come just from exposure to critical care situations in real-life practice. The stakes are too high and the patients too valuable.

Simulation provides a priceless training opportunity using advanced technology to replicate real-life scenarios and allow for experiential learning, educational innovation, collaboration and research.

The Paediatric Simulation Centre will train professionals who care for sick or injured babies and children to intervene quickly, instinctively, consistently and appropriately, using techniques that have been proven to save lives.
