The role of the Senior Clinical Technician is multifaceted and includes the efficient running of skills laboratories, while maintaining and servicing serviceable equipment. The role of the technician has developed with the advancement of iStan and METI products allowing for support of national trends, flexibility in curriculum development and the introduction of new skills for the technician. The integration of iStan into simulation laboratories and the facilitation of simulated practice has had a two-fold impact upon the team. First, by a reduction in facilitator manpower and secondly, by providing a development opportunity to the technician. These changes have resulted in heightened job satisfaction for the technician through observing the change in the nature of student learning and the benefits they are gaining from simulated practice.
