Simulators and models offered by Canadian retailer bring more reality to nursing training programs
MISSISSAUGA, ON, August 20, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Studica Limited Canada, a Canadian retailer for academic software and technology products, announces the expansion of its learning solutions for secondary and post-secondary programs. The expansion features simulators and models that bring unprecedented realism to tools for teaching key nursing skills, including catheterization, wound care and injection administration.
“The healthcare sector is one of the largest and fastest-growing in Canada,” said Ana Gonzalez, Studica’s Business Development Manager. “These training tools are not only as realistic as possible, but they’re paired with curriculum and activities to help ensure that instructors can engage students with opportunities for targeted skill development and career exploration.”
Developed by Studica’s partner, Realityworks®, Inc., Studica’s healthcare training tools are paired with comprehensive curriculum that focuses on specific procedures, and many include one-of-a-kind features to help instructors be more efficient. For instance, the FAST-fluid™ management system manages fluids in Studica’s medical training arms, while the FAST-derm™ replacement skin improves the process of replacing training arm skin.
New healthcare training tools include:
– The Geriatric Medication Management Simulation Kit, which lets students experience sorting multiple prescriptions while encumbered by visual and tactile impairments.
– The Hemiplegia Simulator, which enables students to complete daily tasks while suffering from paralysis on one side of the body.
– The Blood Pressure Simulator, which allows students to practice taking blood pressure on manikins or their peers using randomly generated, real-life scenarios.
– Catheterization Trainers, which feature the most lifelike genitalia models on the market
– Plus tools for addressing anatomy and physiology, injection training, skin condition and wound care and basic patient care
“With these learning aids, healthcare students can practice the clinical and soft skills they will need on the job in scenarios that are accurate and true-to-life,” said Gonzalez. “Unique training tools like these can help ensure that our future healthcare workers have the skills they need to succeed.”
