Discover CAE Healthcare's Custom Simulation Training Solutions

Successful healthcare training depends on a curriculum that has been properly defined to meet all essential academic, professional, regulatory and legislative requirements. CAE defines curricula through the training needs analysis process, one of the key instructional systems design processes used to drive the detailed training plan. Training needs analysis is followed by a methods and media analysis which defines the most appropriate media for teaching each element of the curriculum. CAE’s innovative medical and nursing curricula are designed to fully integrate simulation-based healthcare education both for training and for competency assessment.  CAE works with subject matter experts, clinical educators, and systems design specialists to develop the customized curricula to meet each individual customer’s needs."
