July 20, 2018

A grant from the Chilliwack Foundation has funded Advanced Intravenous (IV) Arms, portable radios, and a specialist moulage kit for paramedics-in-training at the Justice Institute of British Columbia. “Medical simulations allow students to learn and practise key skills and are an essential part of JIBC’s experiential learning model. Thanks to this gift, our students are learning in a more realistic environment, enabling them to be better equipped for their future careers,” stated Kathy Harms, Director of the Health Sciences Division. A JIBC release states that its Chilliwack campus also includes a learning lab and on-site training ambulances. JIBC
