View video transcript

The Southern Cross University School of Health and Human Sciences is an integral part of the NSW community providing quality education to health workers and allied health students.

The Simulation Truck (or Sim Truck) was acquired as part of a successful grant allocation by Health Workforce Australia (HWA) in 2011, an initiative to provide preventative care alongside chronic care for outreach communities. The truck comes with a complete simulation setup for the purposes of on-the-spot training across many health disciplines. The truck can also be changed to suit the needs and layouts required by specific disciplines and service providers.

The truck is used by the University and is available for hire as a state-of-the-art facility for teaching and learning, seminars, public health program or training.

The truck can be placed at specific locations depending on council approval, permission and compliance.

This mobile teaching, learning and health facility is a 'one-of-a-kind' facility in the North Coast area providing access to services previously difficult to obtain or unobtainable.

The truck is a unique provider of service to the community. One of the strengths of this facility is the mobility to meet the needs and requirements of the community. The cost of running this facility and staffing shall always be taken into consideration before accepting a booking.
