This CoDHcast aims to promote and share work on best practice in inclusion in simulation. It explores some of the ways in which simulated learning is being used to give healthcare students a more diverse and inclusive education experience.
The CoDHcast is facilitated by Rayna Rogowsky, Lecturer in Health Sciences at the University of Dundee and one of the Council’s Fellows. Joining Rayna are:
- Diana De, Senior Lecturer in Adult Nursing, Cardiff University and one of the Council’s Fellows
- Dr Neesha Oozageer Gunowa, Pathway Lead in Community Nursing, University of Surrey and one of the Council’s Fellows
- Robert Waterson, Interim Dean of School of Health, Sport and Bioscience, University of East London
The CoDHcast share the work being done in institutions across the UK, despite varying levels of ethnic diversity within its student and local population. We hear about the projects and research being undertaken including using virtual reality, mannequins with diverse skin tones, and culturally representative scenarios.
Diana and Neesha have also written an article calling for wider skin tone representation in simulation-based learning.
