Simulation and technology enhanced learning

The College aims to ensure improved patient and family experience, safety and outcomes by using technical approaches to enhance learning. Simulation and technology enhanced learning (TEL) has an increasingly important role in the delivery and assessment of the national paediatric training curriculum.
