How MedCognition is Making Clinical Training More Intuitive with PerSim, a Holographic Augmented-Reality Patient Assessment System
How MedCognition is Making Clinical Training More Intuitive with PerSim, a Holographic Augmented-Reality Patient Assessment System There is a phenomenon in healthcare that pre-existed the COVID-19 pandemic but may be more pressing than ever after training institutions shuttered for nearly a year in 2020. Emerging from a global public health crisis, healthcare institutions’ use of […]
Medical Training in the Time of COVID It’s only been about a year since the COVID pandemic blind-sided institutions of education. At all levels of education, learning diminished to a trickle or a complete halt. Globally it is estimated that 900 million learners have been impacted. The pandemic effects on healthcare education and training have […]
5 Ways Simulation in Nursing Education Is Used To Prepare Tomorrow’s Nurses With emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, simulation in nursing education has played a critical role in students’ clinical education experiences since clinical placements in hospitals have been restricted or eliminated altogether.(1) However, even pre-pandemic, faculty and researchers recognized the value of simulation in […]
Three Benefits and Challenges of ‘in-situ’ Medical Simulation Benefits Simulation in a clinical environment, otherwise known as in-situ simulation, is supported by various rationale. #1. WHAT IS EARNED IS LEARNED One such motivation is Kolb’s theory of experiential learning. Experiential learning allows trainees in healthcare to engage in near actual practice. Training in real clinical […]
Introduction to Telesimulation The rise of technology and the growing use of virtual interaction in our culture has opened up a new frontier of education with telesimulation. Traditionally, both the teacher and student need to be physically present in the same place—a problem to which telesimulation has offered a unique solution. The field of healthcare, […]
A New Dawn of Simulation Captures the Imagination of Adult Learners & Better Prepares Trainees for Patient Care.
A New Dawn of Simulation Captures the Imagination of Adult Learners & Better Prepares Trainees for Patient Care. By Po-Chang Hsu and Hector Caraballo, MD, FAAEM Training simulations have been used by various industries including the military, entertainment, aviation, and medicine. Aviation was the leading industry of modern simulators. In 1929, Edwin Link developed the […]
