FEDERAL Member for Wannon, Dan Tehan, has been given an insight into a local health education simulation program and the role of the University Department of Rural Health in Hamilton.
The local MP this week experienced first-hand how the simulation based training program is run by watching students participate in a workshop delivered by Greater Green Triangle University Department of Rural Health (GGT UDRH) simulation educators at Western District Health Service.
The program was developed by the GGT UDRH and expanded with funding from Health Workforce Australia (HWA), a Federal Government Initiative.
It is now being delivered in Hamilton and other parts of regional Victoria and South Australia with those in 31 rural and remote towns so far receiving access to the simulation activities.
