UAB Takes Medical Simulation Training on The Road
It might look like a typical 38-foot recreational vehicle on the outside, but the inside paints a different picture. This is a sophisticated medical training tool. The Alabama Rural Health Collaborative and SimUAB® Mobile Simulation Lab brings advanced simulation training directly to health care professionals around the state. It is a training and teaching tool available to hospitals and medical facilities affiliated with the UAB Health System.
A new joint project between the Alabama Rural Health Collaborative and SimUAB®, a component of UAB Clinical Simulation, the lab is the only mobile simulation unit in Alabama.
“Simulation training is a growing practice, which allows health care professionals at all levels to improve their skills and demonstrate their knowledge base without risk to patients,” said April Belle, DNP, senior simulation coordinator. “UAB’s Clinical Simulation program is an accredited simulation program with a record of partnering with content experts to help implement best practices in health care. And now we can take our training program on the road.”
