Digital simulation, an innovative and complementary approach to health training
Practicing procedures, discussing treatment decisions, recreating complex situations virtually – all these are teaching objectives to which digital simulation provides an innovative and relevant answer.
Whether during initial or continuing medical education, digital simulation allows healthcare professionals to practice the virtual management of a patient, before being faced with a real human being whose health is at stake.
Digital simulation is the missing link between theory and practice and should therefore find a place in all training programs.Discover our solutions
What they think of digital simulation
Even though trainee doctors have already been shown the procedures, it will always be worrying that there is still “a first time on the patient”.
In the field of gastro-enterology where gut endoscopy is a common procedure (e.g. colonoscopy, gastroscopy), digital simulation would be a remarkable aid for our discipline.
There are, for example, simulation robots which allow students in training to familiarize themselves with the procedures to follow during a colonoscopy, but these solutions are quite rare and remain very costly.Dr. Didier Mennecier, Hepatologist and Gastroenterologist, Creator of the website hepatoweb.com 2015 Prize winner of the National Academy of Medicine
In continuing professional development, training activities that give the learner feedback on his medical practice are the future. Virtual simulation is the tool of choice.Dr. Vincent Jobin. CPD Lead, Faculty of Medicine, University of Montreal.
Patients, relatives, students, health professionals – all now have access to the digital world. In fact, it has become an indispensable tool for information, teaching and education. At the CIS (Interprofessional Simulation Center), interprofessional working is at the heart of our vision and mission. Combining our teaching expertise with that of professionals in new technologies, our aim is to develop a large number of digital projects to serve students and health professionals.Gregory Cardot, Technical Manager of the Geneva Interprofessional Center for
As far back as we can remember, our initial training as medical students, from a very early stage, made use of simulation. Since then, medical education has gradually followed in the footsteps of other professions, in particular those requiring practicing of procedures, acquisition of skills, or decision making in emergencies as a team-leader – all difficult situations to put into action in practice. Although the development of digital simulation now allows us to have interactive clinical scenarios and digital avatars with a psychological profile, it is nevertheless still true that an “intelligent” solution to a case requires upstream design work, which puts the teacher at the heart of a new system of so-called digital “dossimology” (“docimology [evaluation methods] for simulation”)Pascal Staccini, Professor of Public Health specializing in Health Informatics, Department of Risk Analysis and Health Informatics (IRIS) - Faculty of Medicine - University of Nice Sophia Antipolis - Co-organizer of the international symposium SeGaMed (Serious Gaming applied to Medicine and Health)
Digital simulation creates the link between theory and practice. It allows skills essential for future doctors and other healthcare professionals to be assessed and covered in a virtual reality situation. The interactive and immersive character of digital simulation truly offers an educational complement to the internships undertaken by students during their training.Prof. Patrick Dehail, MD PhD, Associate Dean, Faculty of Medicine, School of Medical Sciences, Bordeaux.
Digital simulation represents a harmonized and diversified training opportunity, aimed at all areas of activity of future therapists relevant to their professional life. A program created in line with government policy will foster the personal development plan of every student, whether in initial or continuing training, so as to improve quality of treatment and care.Prof. Peggy Gatignol, speech therapist, PhD, HDR
By offering the possibility of creating or re-creating clinical situations, simulation will allow all its users, students or health professionals, to “learn while doing”. By practicing their actions and analyzing them, they will improve their professionalism.Sophie Alex-Bacquer, French Red Cross official
Digital simulation in health provides tangible ways of reasserting the need to recognize the human element in every patient, and to no longer see people’s bodies as teaching tools, sometimes even without their consent. It gives rise to a new doctrine: “never on the patient the first time”. In this manner it is an opportunity to democratize healthcare. Beyond the training of health professionals, digital simulation in healthcare could also become a tool for training and supporting patients, complementary to, or even within the context of, patient education.Yvanie Caillé, Founder and Director of patients association, Renaloo
