Regional clinical simulation centre to be launched
(MENAFN- Jordan News Agency) Amman, Sept 18 (Petra) –– The Jordan Nursing Council is working to launch a regional clinical simulation centre to train health professionals and enhance their technical capabilities at the national and regional levels, the council's Secretary-General Hani Nawafleh announced.
He told Petra in an interview on Saturday that a large part of the centre had been accomplished, predicting that the new facility will start receiving trainees in November.
Nawafleh said that the centre is being equipped with the support of the Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation through a grant from the Arab Fund for Economic and Social Development.
The regional clinical simulation facility aims to enhance the capacities of workers in the health profession in Jordan and the Arab countries, especially nurses and midwives, through continuing training and education programmes and professional development based on simulation and active learning, to improve the quality of nursing care services to patients and their families, he said.
The facility will respond to the global development in training, continuing education and professional development programmes through switching to simulation-based programmes and shifting from theoretical learning to practical clinical learning by qualifying nurses and identifying their weaknesses before entering the work environment, he pointed out.
