Audio Visual Support Service

The Audio Visual Support service for the School of Nursing and Midwifery is an area that offers and aids both staff and students in the utilisation of any of the audio visual facilities contained within the School and beyond. This would range from the provision of required equipment and media to the production of material including recording of procedures and presentations for evaluation or indeed promotional tasks.

Its main remit would be to facilitate the Digital Recording facility contained within the Clinical Skills Simulation Centre which allows lecturing staff and students alike to record any medical procedures or indeed communication skills being performed within the Clinical Skills Resource Centre for instant  review or evaluation at a later date.

The Audio Visual Support service also works in conjunction with the IT services of the school as these two areas are now very much intertwined thus ensuring a smooth and unseen transition for any crossover in the work load between the areas of AV and IT within the school.
