CIT receives prize for healthcare training
Published: 17 Oct 2016
CIT were pleased to have Pro-Visual Publishing's CEO John Hutchings and Marketing Manager Deanna Davenport present CIT as the winner of their Pro-Vis AR competition. A generous $5,000 prize and trophy were received by CIT health staff.
CIT stood out from the many entries received due to our commitment to workplace health and safety and our use of the Augmented Reality (AR) capable guide, National Guide for Aged Care 2016, alongside our health sector training programs.
"It was a great honour presenting CIT with this award. After touring the facilities, it is evident that great pride is taken in the way students are educated. It also shows that CIT is very much up to date with using new technologies to ensure safety and awareness of key issues" - John Hutchings, Pro-Visual Publishing CEO.
Hosted at CIT Bruce, health staff showcased their state-of-the-art-training facilities including life-size manikins used by students who are training in direct care work.
"They provide students with the opportunity to conduct assistance with daily activities such as bed bathing, showering, continence care, dressing and undressing and utilised for practice in lifting and transfer" - Barbara Lawson, Aged Care Program Coordinator.
The life-size manikins create a safe and stress-free environment for students to refine their skills and techniques in order to become safe and successful care workers. Students are required to treat a manikin the same way they would treat a client they are caring for, with respect and consideration.
CIT would like to thank Pro-Visual Publishing for this honorary prize and we look forward to continuing to strengthen our position as a leading training provider within the healthcare sector.
