Health Education Australia Limited (HEAL)

At HEAL, we provide a range of programs for students, professionals and healthcare organisations.

Some of these are aimed at helping international graduates secure a job in the Australian healthcare industry. Others – like our Simulated Participant program – are intended to assist in the delivery of quality health education across all health professions. 

Simulated Participants (SPs) are an all-important education resource in healthcare and play a crucial role in helping health professional students develop their communication and diagnostic skills – particularly in exams. With our dedicated SP program, healthcare educators can source and engage with trained simulated participants whenever they need to.

We recruit and train simulated participants according to different educational needs, introducing them to the role and preparing them to work in the health education environment.

Laerdal was established as a children's book publishing and toy company in 1940 with the mission of "creating children's joy". During the next years, 100 million of Laerdal's Tomte cars were sold in 100 countries. Laerdal's Anne dolls became popular throughout Europe.

Laerdal's pioneering work with soft plastics would later be used to produce the first manikin used for resuscitation training, changing the course of the company.

Today, more than 300 million people have been trained in CPR - most of them using Resusci Anne. It is estimated that at least 2 million lives have been saved...and counting.
