The Changi Simulation Institute (CSI) is an integrated simulation training centre serving the healthcare community in the Eastern Health Alliance (EH Alliance). The CSI enables healthcare professionals to train safely and efficiently through realistic training scenarios while experiencing a wide range of clinical situations.
Housed within Changi General Hospital, the CSI features simulation laboratories which can be converted to replicas of different clinical care areas such as the operating theatre, intensive care unit and general wards. Each is equipped with HD cameras to record the simulation training process, two-way audio and visual-streaming system, and high-fidelity manikins that mimics patients’ physiological responses to stress and illnesses and create a realistic clinical scenario. The integrated audio-visual system is wired into the key training areas and allows real-time playback capabilities. Thus, the facilitators, trainees and observers can maximize learning with immediate feedback and effective reinforcements.
The CSI enables healthcare professionals including doctors, nurses and allied health professionals to train in various scenarios from critical care procedures to emergency resuscitation, in a safe and familiar environment. Teamwork and communication, crucial in real-life medical scenarios, can also be improved during simulation training.
The introduction of these new facilities and training courses is another milestone in our commitment to becoming “a hospital recognized by patients and staff for excellence and compassion in service and care.”
CSI will be providing training courses in:
1. Task Training which improves core competency in specific skill sets for the healthcare worker. Some examples include IV cannulation, BCLS, Intubation, Central venous catheter and chest tube insertion, and Lumbar puncture for Epidural)
2. Team integration and Crew Resource Management which facilitates the seamless integration of the healthcare team.
