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. Barré A. Benabbou, Y. Bourrier, V. Corneloup, A. Job

Study on the effectiveness of the virtual simulator 3D-SC1®, for combat lifesaving

In October 2017, the results of the study carried out on the virtual simulator* 3D-SC1® were published. This lifesaving training during interventions in combat has been deployed in all French military hospitals and all the French Armed Forces. The performances of the users were able to be measured to evaluate the effectiveness of it.

Manikin-based simulation or computer-based simulation (Serious Game)?

The example of the digital simulator on acute coronary syndrome The training of health professionals by simulation is rapidly expanding in France. High-fidelity training with manikins necessitates considerable resources such as trainers, premises, acquisition and maintenance costs.  Virtual simulation circumvents these limits and becomes an essential tool in the pedagogical courses in healthcare.
