Abstract: The SimVan is the first mobile clinical training environment of its type in Victoria. It is capable of delivering training to health professionals in small towns and remote areas using the latest high-tech equipment, including mobile video capture. Since commencing operations in March 2013, the Sim Van has delivered training to health facilities in a number of smaller towns in the Grampians Region including Kaniva, Nhill, Natimuk, Rainbow, Jeparit, Stawell and Woomelang along with Daylesford, Bacchus Marsh and Ballarat. In that time it has travelled 24,000 kilometres, delivered 147 clinical education sessions over 8,627 hours to 1,302 participants. This session highlights the real benefits and results of this ground-breaking, award winning program and challenges health educators and governments everywhere to take up the challenge to broaden the program across all states and disciplines.
