OMS AND ASPiH Mental Health Initiative (“the Initiative”)

  • As part of this Initiative, OMS will provide institutions with access to:
    • A 3-scenario library of mental health scenarios for nursing created by Oxford Medical Simulation Team (“the Mental Health Scenarios”).
    • Institutional and learner accounts.
    • Webinars  and automated online training to facilitate setup.
  • Access to the OMS platform will be provided free of charge until December 31st 2021.
  • At the end of this period access to the Mental Health Scenarios will terminate unless ongoing access has been expressly agreed as part of a paid plan. Participation in this initiative creates no commitment to do so on the part of the client.
  • The Mental Health Scenarios can be used in fully immersive Virtual Reality or on screen (PC or Mac) – hardware requirements provided on the initial engagement call.

Client Requirements

  • The client must be an NHS Hospital, NHS Trust or HEE Region with a minimum of 10 learners.
  • The client must have adequate administrative or faculty support to ensure efficient use. 
  • The client must engage in the setup, training and evaluation process.
  • If the client is not already served by OMS, they must sign a legal agreement in our standard form. This is a no cost, no commitment agreement that includes protection of client data and OMS intellectual property. This will be provided after the initial engagement call.
