Training & Development
Ensuring the provision of safe quality care to our community is a priority for all health care providers. Providing educational opportunities that support meeting the needs of the health consumer along with meeting the needs of health care providers is a priority for the Training & Development unit at Joondalup Health Campus (JHC). Supporting our staff and local health care providers with access to education and research opportunities enhances their knowledge and promotes the use of contemporary, evidence based practice.
The role and purpose of the Training & Development unit is to facilitate the development, implementation and evaluation of ongoing comprehensive education programs and provide professional learning and development opportunities to all staff members within the organisation.
Training and Development is committed to supporting a culture of excellence by encouraging life-long learning to all staff.
We have a dedicated team of staff educators in our central department and staff development nurses located within ward areas who provide supported learning opportunities to all staff ranging from new starters to experienced practitioners, facilitating growth and development in their careers of choice. We are a team of senior nurses with varying clinical knowledge and education experience. All members of this team hold relevant education qualifications ranging from Certificate IV in Training & Assessment to Masters of Nurse Education.
The Training & Development unit is located on the first floor of the Community Clinical School. The clinical school is located alongside the new Joondalup Private Hospital and includes the JHC Clinical Library, lecture theatres, offices and meeting rooms and is used to train the doctors, nurses and allied health professionals of the future.
Training and development at JHC has recently entered a new era with the appointment of the hospital’s first dedicated simulation coordinator, tasked with making significant improvements to the way simulation activities at the hospital are carried out.
The immersive simulation now incorporated into the training and education culture here at JHC will in turn improve patient outcomes. Immersive simulation is about making the clinical and non-clinical exercises more realistic.
