Simulation Education Coordinator
Pauline has more than 30 years’ experience in tertiary level organisations as a clinician, manager and educator after training as a registered nurse and midwife. With a focus on developing clinicians to ensure safe, quality health care, she became involved with developing and establishing simulation-based education activities throughout Queensland.
Pauline’s significant experience in developing clinicians led to her becoming both part of the local simulation faculty and a jurisdictional mentor of the NHET-Sim national simulation training program. She is also a co-facilitator on faculty training programs conducted by the internationally renowned Center for Medical Simulation.
Pauline has helped educators from a range of health professions design, deliver and debrief a variety of simulation activities—from full-day education courses in MEPIC to point-of-care activities throughout the clinical areas. She regularly presents her work at national and international simulation conferences.
Her next step is to help healthcare providers apply the opportunities simulation offers in testing new processes, resources and even buildings to provide safe and high quality healthcare.
