This paper describes how engagement with the WA Simulation in Healthcare Alliance, the peak body for simulation-based learning in Western Australia will help WA Health to:

  • Put patients first, whilst driving efficiencies and change through utilisation of an evidence- based, best practice care pathway that encompasses the latest simulation-based learning techniques and technologies.
  • Address gaps in service provision to deliver training for healthcare professionals in the most appropriate ways and maximise health outcomes and value to the public.
  • Help to reduce duplication and to deliver integrated and coordinated care; with safety and quality considered, and best value for money due to economies of scale.
  • Attract high calibre trainees to WA health services through the provision of quality training experiences utilising simulation; health services and patients will benefit.
