VR SIMULATION TO IMPROVE CLINICAL PERFORMANCE AND PATIENT SAFETY
Who we are
At Oxford Medical Simulation we use virtual reality and screen-based simulation to train healthcare professionals in world-class patient management without risking lives.
Why we’re here
Physicians and nurses used to learn through “see one, do one, teach one” – training on the job with real patients.
The increasing focus on patient safety and outcomes has meant this risk is no longer acceptable.
Medical simulation – training clinicians in simulated emergencies using manikins and actors – has therefore become central to training, allowing healthcare professionals to practice in a safe environment without compromising patient safety.
Simulation is highly effective. However, it is expensive, low throughput and not widely accessible, so healthcare workers cannot receive all the training they need to deliver optimal patient care.
What we do
We remove these barriers by offering virtual reality training scenarios. These provide a completely immersive, engaging, evidence-based learning environment for all healthcare professionals.
Our fast-paced, repeatable, real-life scenarios can deliver consistently excellent, standardized clinical training to physicians, nurses and all other healthcare professionals.
The focus is on clinical decision-making under pressure, crisis resource management, team interaction and patient engagement – with independent clinical trials demonstrating our impact on performance.LEARN MORE
