VHA SimLEARN National Simulation Center
The VHA SimLEARN National Simulation Center was built on the campus of the new Orlando VA Medical Center, which is part of the exciting new "Medical City" campus at Lake Nona.
The Lake Nona development site includes other large clinical, education and research facilities. A variety of Federal simulation research offices are in close proximity at the University of Central Florida campus. This strategic placement facilitates enhanced opportunities for research in new simulation technologies and methods.
The VHA SimLEARN National Simulation Center serves as the operational hub for coordination of all national VHA clinical simulation activities.
The Resuscitation Education Initiative (REdI) is a national program to standardize, document, track and monitor the provision of Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) training throughout VHA. REdI is a business unit within the EES Simulation Learning Education and Research Network (SimLEARN). It will provide critical train-the-trainer clinical training support to the field's efforts to provide training to large numbers of medical center clinical and non-clinical employees.
