Elmwood House
Elmwood House is an invaluable asset to student nurses in preparing them for clinical placement. It has enabled us to sensitively prepare students for the demands of placement experience where they are exposed to a variety of scenarios and problems that they must solve.
Students are required to make appropriate choices in dealing with the specific care needs of service users with learning disabilities. The choices they make will have either positive or negative consequences for the service user; students then explore these virtual experiences through discussion, problem-solving and reflection within the classroom setting. The value of these virtual experiences is that students will simulate problem-solving challenges in an environment which is safe both for themselves and for the service-users and has been evaluated extremely well by students.
