The LIU Post College of Health Professionals and Nursing recently held a ribbon cutting and demonstration of the university’s new state-of-the-art health care simulation center. The event was part of LIU Post’s Homecoming weekend.
The state-of-the-art center—called the Interprofessional Simulation Center—is a critical part of the university’s experiential approach to educating the next generation of health-care professionals. The center simulates real-world situations, using advanced simulation equipment. The participants learn proper interventions, refine interprofessional skills and increase confidence in their abilities.
LIU Post’s Interprofessional Simulation Center is unique as it supports interdisciplinary and translational research, adding to the body of knowledge on simulation, practice, technology, quality and safety in a real-world health care setting.
Among the honored guests to the ribbon cutting were Dr. Stacy Gropack, dean, School of Health Professionals and Nursing, along with Winifred B. Mack, senior vice president, Health Systems Operations at Northwell Health.
