Video: VR Simulation at Oxford University

VR medical simulation

Dr Sally Shiels discusses the value of VR simulation at the OxSTaR simulation centre in the Oxford University Hospital Trust

VR simulation

Dr. Sally Shiels is an anaesthetist at OxSTaR (Oxford Simulation, Teaching and Research), the purpose-built, state-of-the-art medical simulation teaching and research facility in Oxford University Hospital.

Sally discusses virtual reality’s impact on training for medical students and clinicians, how immersive technology is supporting patient safety, and the types of programs the OxSTaR center are developing.

“Providing our students with virtual patients has been an absolute sea change in terms of medical education” 

Using OMS has allowed OxSTaR to expand their training capabilities, preparing medical students more fully for clinical practice, in order to improve patient safety.

“We’re taking our students into a virtual world where they can learn safely, and that is really important, because then they feel safe to make mistakes.”

Dr. Jack Pottle outlines OMS Interprofessional during the IMSH 2020 conference

Interprofessional Education (IPE) in VR

Dr. Jack Pottle, Chief Medical Officer of Oxford Medical Simulation, speaks with the team at HealthySimulation about the OMS VR simulation system.

“OMS is taking the traditional way we do simulation and scaling it – saving time, saving space and saving money” 

Designed for medical and nursing professionals of all levels, Dr Pottle outlines the development of OMS Interprofessional – the IPE mode that allows clinicians to treat virtual patients together wherever they are in the world.

OMS is helping healthcare system expand and optimize their simulation delivery to improve patient care…

“Allowing hospitals, hospital systems and simulation centers deliver training that is objective, standardized and of seriously high quality. It feels real; it improves performance”
