The University of Stavanger has received NOK 18.7 million from Norad to implement simulation-based education in nursing and midwifery with partner universities in Malawi and Tanzania. The initiators are also a partner in the 360visi project.

– The project’s overall aim is to implement simulation-based education to strengthen the capacity and quality of nursing and midwifery education in Malawi and Tanzania, says project manager Ingrid Tjoflåt.

She is a professor in nursing at the Faculty of Health Sciences and will be coordinating the project. Tjoflåt has extensive experience from research on quality and competence development in various international contexts and research on teaching methods focusing on digital tools.

For the past three years, Tjoflåt and Bø have been conducting a research project on simulation-based nursing education with partners in Tanzania and Madagascar. Together with an international project group, they are also involved in the 360ViSi project.

–We will use experiences from this and other relevant projects in our collaboration with Malawi and Tanzania, says Tjoflåt.
