The center will provide over 600 nurses a year with community-based rehabilitation training to help them assist patients with disabilities on the transition back into their communities.
In 2010, Project HOPE and Wuhan University HOPE School of Nursing received a grant from USAID’s Office of American Schools and Hospitals Abroad (ASHA) to help set up a Simulation Research Center at the nursing school. The nursing school purchased advanced simulators and a simulation teaching and learning system from the U.S. and sent the teaching team to the U.S. for expert training on simulation teaching and management.
As part of that effort, the HOPE School of Nursing recently opened a first of its kind Simulated Rehabilitation Center. The center will provide over 600 nurses a year with community-based rehabilitation training to help them assist patients with disabilities on the transition back into their communities. The center will also serve as a research platform for faculty at the school, as well as nursing personnel and clinical supervisors from other hospitals and community centers.
Simulation teaching is a relative new teaching method in China. More nursing schools and professional schools in China realize the usefulness of simulation teaching and are deciding to set up simulation labs. However, most of them don’t know how to integrate simulation teaching in their curriculum. Staff at the Wuhan University HOPE School of Nursing are sharing the expert simulation teaching experiences, learned in the U.S., with other nursing schools, professional schools and hospitals.
