Olson Centre for Health Simulation

The Olson Centre for Health Simulation uses simulation to improve patient safety, quality of care, health care, and human services education.

Simulation education is a bridge between classroom learning and real-life experience. It places learners in a life-like environment where they can employ the skills they’ve been learning in class in real time, and provides the opportunity to critically reflect on their experience afterwards.

Simulation promotes skills acquisition, aids development of clinical judgment, and teaches students about complex situations with lifelike examples. It provides an invaluable safety net for learning, allowing students to acquire and develop critical-thinking and decision-making skills without exposing clients to unnecessary risk.

Our mission

The Olson Centre for Health Simulation supports workforce readiness through the integration of applied critical thinking, competencies, and knowledge to prepare front-line professionals for Alberta and beyond.

Our vision

The Olson Centre for Health Simulation and its partners remain at the leading edge of immersive education through a research-based, learner-centred environment.

Our values

Collaboration, inclusivity, innovation, professionalism, relevance
