Utilising simulation to emulate real-world scenarios, each customised OptiSim program is designed to mitigate risk, enhance the experiences of patients and staff, and reduce costs.  OptiSim provides the ability to test, refine and improve, while engaging and supporting staff and posing no risk to patients.

OptiSim’s tailored approach produces exceptional outcomes in:

  • experiential orientation for staff when preparing the roll-out of a new service line or the opening of a new facility
  • trialling new and high-risk medical procedures
  • medical device design and prototype testing
  • stakeholder confidence

Here’s how we’ve helped healthcare organisations across Queensland:

Mercy Community prepare for COVID-19 with OptiSim

Mercy Community Aged Care Services made sure their staff and residents were fully prepared for COVID-19 by using Mater Education’s OptiSim service to imitate an outbreak.

Aimed at both assessing existing processes and response tactics, as well as upskilling staff to fill any gaps, this best-practice simulation service provided training on several COVID-19 potential challenges.  These included managing an outbreak and treating a resident experiencing rapid deterioration from infection.
