Mother and Child Simulation Centre

Through its Mother and Child Simulation Centre (MCSC), CHU Sainte-Justine—the only mother and child centre in Québec—has acquired new educational tools in order to integrate knowledge transfer and support the different teaching, health promotion and research missions. These tools, proof of how far new technologies have come, enable the sharing of knowledge associated with health care.

Furthermore, to achieve its special tertiary and quaternary care mission, CHUSJ developed a continuing education service offer for its nursing staff, based on innovative skills development practices.

The Mother and Child Simulation Centre (MCSC) at CHU Sainte-Justine is located at the heart of the main CHU Sainte-Justine building (6th floor, bloc 9), located at 3175 Côte-Sainte-Catherine in Montreal.

Under the responsibility of the Academic Department, it opened its doors in fall 2010. Since then, nearly 1,000 simulation and continuing education activities have been held there, hosting close to 20 students per day.

More specifically, the Mother and Child Simulation Centre (MCSC) enables users to :

  • Practise medical, nursing or other actions
  • Practise various techniques on mannequins or using computers
  • Practise the best ways to respond to and communicate with patients
  • Simulate crises
  • Benefit from e-learning
  • Become certified on certain technical skills
  • Assess how the simulated care given contributes to the improvement of care for patients
  • Implement standardized processes
  • Teach parents various techniques in order to see to their child's well-being

The Centre has a total surface area of more than 5,500 ft2.
