Combined simulation with VR and computer-controlled manikins
Uwe Weber, Claudia Schlegel
Berner Bildungszentrum Pflege, Switzerland
In combination with a computer-controlled high-fidelity manikin, at the Bern Centre of Higher Education in Nursing we also use virtual reality (VR) technology, to train nursing
students in emergency situations. This sequential simulation with two high-tech teaching meth-ods makes it possible to increase the complexity of a patient situation.
With the use of a Virtual Reality software, which was specially developed for nursing
students, we were able to further develop the patient case using the VR technology, so
students could experience a patient pathway in sequences, first with the high-fidelity manikin and then learn in a virtually/immersive environment. With this approach the complexity of the case could be increased.
The students showed a high readiness to learn and a very high satisfaction with the learning opportunity.
It is apparent that the combined simulation with virtual reality and computer-controlled
manikins is an ideal supplement for learning nursing skills.
