Gävle University are now installed with their state-of-the-art
We are proud of these premises and the equipment we have, and the possibilities created for students, lecturers and collaborators, and would like to present it all to you!
Thus we invite you to come to the opening, presentation and demonstration of the facilities.
Tea, coffee and gatêau will be served.
State-of-the-art simulation manikins can be found at the Gävle University.
Sweden’s most up-to-date and well-equipped training facilities are now being used by student nurses at the Gävle University.
There are three structured care rooms with high-tech anatomical manikins in each room.
The students can train here and become familiar with some of the many different aspects of care situations.
The manikins can blink and vomit – they are manoeuvred by a lecturer in an adjacent room. Students can practice giving injections, taking a pulse, giving emergency treatment etc.
“These structured care rooms mean such a lot, increasing the standard of our training, and our examinations will become safer” says Anita Nyström, associate lecturer and the person who heads the simulation-based learning.
“The exercises become so real, limited only by ones own perspective. One can hear audible respiratory sounds, one can intubate, and learn to position a central veneous catheter. Our ambition is to be the best clinical training centre and now we have the best equipment in the whole country”.
