mental health emergency response simulation project
The Mental Health Emergency Response Simulation Project is investigating immersive simulation education to support inter-professional clinical staff in recognising and responding to the acute deterioration, aggression or violence experienced by MH consumers.
To date there have been 70 staff who have attended MHERP training, with results showing increased improvements in staff confidence levels. Specifically, staff confidence in managing emergency situations, showing leadership and communicating effectively in an emergency were all shown to increase after attending the education sessions.
The project will continue for another six months when a final report will be prepared.
