Canadian Alliance of Nurse educators using Simulation (CAN-Sim)
A virtual simulation game to improve the knowledge and practice of COVID-19 assessment and use of personal protective equipment (PPE). The game allows you to follow a client with COVID-19 symptoms through assessment and care from the initial public health nurse phone assessment to care in a COVID-10 Assessment Centre and Emergency Department. This simulation is created for nursing students and graduate nurses, and others providing health services.
