Let’s explore what VR simulation can and can’t do in the healthcare training field
Virtual reality (VR) is one of many emerging technologies that’s transforming the healthcare education field. VR technology is one method through which medical simulation scenarios can be delivered to physician, nursing, and PA students during their training programs.
During a VR medical simulation scenario, headsets provide a dynamic, 3D view of simulated patients and structures, and students use hand controls to interact with the scenarios. Sophisticated software is used to design the scenarios, and virtual patients respond realistically to students’ decisions for care and treatment.
Virtual reality technology is glamorous and enthralling, and many educators are excited by the possibilities VR solutions could bring to medical training programs in Miami, FL and worldwide.
However, before you decide to invest in VR solutions for your facility, take the time to consider: when is virtual reality the right solution? When is it not? Let’s explore these questions in further depth.
