On February 15th, 2018 a severe traumatology training day was held in Marseille – “Emergency Thursdays 2018”, organised in cooperation with the naval fire fighters of Marseille.
During the Segamed Congress in Nice on January 19th and 20th 2018, the researchers of ILumens and LATI of the Université Paris Descartes research laboratories presented one of their scientific articles from the MacCoy Critical research project. Medusims is participating in this French National Research Agency (ANR) project over 42 months to adapt its virtual medical simulations to the learning and improvement of non-technical skills in critical situations.
“There is a real need of virtual environments (VE) which would put learners in varied and ecological situations, resulting in knowledge and skills which would be put into practice in real situations (Barot, Lourdeaux, Burkhardt & Lenne, 2013), while taking into account the learner’s profile.
Furthermore, these VE are mainly oriented to the acquisition or improvement of “Technical Skills” (TS), i.e. specialised skills (for example: procedures…) necessary for the technical realisation of tasks. As for the Non-Technical Skills (NTS), they are “social, cognitive skills and personal resources that complete the technical skills of workers and contribute to effective and safe performances” (Flin, O’Connor et Crichton, 2008).

The general objective of this article is to present the Virtual Environments and developed scenarios – a medical simulator presenting a situation of Postpartum Haemorrhage, and a driving simulator designed to expose drivers to situations that mobilise the NTS.” J.
