Basic Preparation Studio
In the basic preparation studio, mannequins and task trainer models are used to teach psycho-motor and assessment skills.
Students practice a variety of tasks, including starting IVs and practicing wound care. The basic studio space has technology and space to accommodate didactic content delivery, which allows students to learn about and observe the procedure before practicing.
As students progress, learning becomes more complex, with the incorporation of psycho-social, communication and critical thinking skills. Various levels of mannequins and simulators add realism and complexity to learning experiences. For example, the ability to program heart and lung sounds in the “patients” enables students to listen and monitor appropriate anatomical locations.
