Student and Staff Awards

Nicki Watts 
Secured CDU Small Innovation Grant to transform soft body ‘baby dolls’ used in simulation to more high fidelity simulation models at low cost.  These dolls now simulate a fetal or newborn heart rate and heart sounds audible through a stethoscope or pinnards/doppler.  This gives the students a more real world experience to undertake fetal or newborn heart rate assessments prior to clinical placement.  They are being used this semester in the simulation weeks.
