ADVANCE Care through Teaching and Learning

With our ADVANCE pillar we are enhancing our education mandate to support our learners, staff and physicians through the following areas:

Foster education scholarly activity

  • Support NYGH staff in dedicating time to explore education opportunities through academic protected time which will improve patient care, generate and disseminate research, scholarship and quality improvement results.

Advancing collaborative teams

  • Focus on improving team collaboration to enhance quality of care, service delivery and patient and staff experience.
  • Expand simulation activities with a simulation pilot project to support various programs at North York General Hospital.
Simulation training for a complex birth at NYGH.
The Maternal, Newborn and Paediatric Care Program currently employs in-situ simulation activities. Monthly simulations occur on the Paediatric Unit during the regular course of the day. An interprofessional team (physicians, nurses, respiratory therapist, residents, students etc.) participate in a simulated paediatric resuscitation followed by a debrief. The simulations are developed and implemented by the clinical educator and a paediatrician.
