Welcome to the HSN Simulation Laboratory. Our vision at HSN is to be globally recognized for patient centred innovation. We strive to improve the health of northerners by working with our partners to advance quality care, education, research and health promotion. At the Simulation Laboratory we use inter-professional medical simulation to improve patient safety and the culture of reflective multidisciplinary practice.
The Simulation Laboratory promotes high-quality educational activities across all health professions including nursing, respiratory therapy, paramedicine, physicians and other allied health practitioners. Through collaboration with our partners at the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) we are fostering the future of medical care in the north and providing an environment for patient, and learner-safe education. Beginning with ensuring high-quality educators and a first rate environment for learning, HSN has created the foundation for the creation of a culture of patient safety, reflective team practice and patient-centred innovation.
We look forward to continued successes in training invasive procedures, team work and multidisciplinary collaboration toward a sustainable, safer health care system.
