The digital simulation advantage

Enhance patient safety through healthcare medical simulation 

Role playing clinical cases allows learners in graduate or continuing education to develop, refine, and apply knowledge and skills in a realistic situation. By interacting with patients and objects in a situation close to everyday life, digital simulation improves critical thinking, acquisition of automatisms and clinical decision-making skills.

What they think about digital simulation

Health digital simulation provides tangible solutions that recognize the human aspects in each patient instead of just seeing the bodies used as learning objects, sometimes without consent. It enables the emergence of a new rule, “never first on a patient.” It is an opportunity to democratize health. Beyond the training of health professionals, health digital simulation could also become a training tool and support for patients, in addition to or as part of therapeutic education.

Yvanie Caillé, Founder and Director of patients’ association, Renaloo

Through continuing professional development, training activities that allow feedback to be provided to the learner on their medical practice is the way of the future. Digital simulation is a tool of choice.

Dr. Vincent Jobin. DPC Manager, School of Medicine. University of Montreal.

Digital simulation represents a harmonized and diversified training offer by targeting all fields of activity of future therapists in preparation for their eventual placement. A course that meets healthcare regulatory requirement that will encourage the personal development of students in their initial training or the continuing education of professionals in order to improve the quality of care.

Prof. Peggy Gatignol, Speech Therapist, PhD, HDR

Digital simulation creates a link between theory and practice. Through virtual reality, it can address and assess the skills essential for future doctors and other healthcare professionals.
The interactive and immersive character of digital simulation truly complements the education that students receive during their training.

Prof. Patrick Dehail, MD PhD, Vice Dean, School of Medicine, School of Medical Sciences, Bordeaux

For patients, relatives, students and health professionals, digital is now available to all. In fact, it has become an essential information, teaching and education tool.

Within the CIS (Inter-professional Simulation Center), inter-professionalism is at the heart of our vision and our mission. By combining our expertise with those of new technologies teaching professionals, we are focused on developing a number of digital projects to serve students and healthcare professionals.

Gregory Cardot, Technical Manager of the Inter-professional Simulation Center, Geneva, European health simulation instructor

The possibility simulation offers to create or recreate clinical situations will enable all users, students and health professionals to learn by doing. Through repetition and analysis, it will strengthen their professionalism.

Sophie Alex-Bacquer, French Red Cross Manager

It is still a concern, even if interns being trained are already familiar with the gestures, that always there will be a “first on the patient.”

In the field of gastroenterology, where the gestures of endoscopy are common (colonoscopy, gastroscopy), digital simulation would be a remarkable contribution to our discipline.

There are, for example, simulation robots that allow students in training to become familiar with the gestures of a colonoscopy, but these solutions are still quite rare and expensive.

Dr. Didier Mennecier, Hepato-Gastroenterology, Creator of the site Hepatoweb.com, 2015 National Academy of Medicine awardee.

As far back as can be remembered, from a very early stage, our initial medical studies relied on simulation. The approach in medical studies was then gradually applied to other areas of professional learning, particularly those requiring repetition of movement, skill acquisition, decision-making in an emergency situation and coordination of a team, all difficult situations to replicate for purposes of practice.

While the shift to digital simulation now enables us to have interactive illustrations and psychologically-profiled digital avatars, it remains that “smart” case resolution requires the upstream design work that puts the educator at the heart of a new system of digital “dossimulogy”.
