• Team training in healthcare

The healthcare industry is an ever-changing field that requires extensive skills and training for its professionals. Different disciplines work together to ensure high quality patient care, and they need to be prepared for the teamwork involved.

Healthcare education is key to improving patient outcomes and ensuring quality of life. A simulation-based training is very suitable for this purpose. A clinical simulation facility reflects the realities encountered in actual care settings.


Clinical simulation lab

Both medical and nursing students can benefit of training courses in a clinical simulation lab. In the lab, students can practice the following in a safe learning environment:

  • how to best use medical equipment
  • clinical procedures
  • cognitive skills (e.g. prioritizing, critical thinking, decision-making, and situational awareness)
  • interpersonal skills (e.g. communication, collaboration, team leading, and team building)
  • social context in diagnosis

Also, working in healthcare is often stressful, with long hours and difficult situations to deal with. However, by offering development and training it is possible to minimize the negative aspects of the job, and increase employee retention, competency, job satisfaction, and productivity.

Simulation training software

Because of these features, Viso is the AV solution for you:

  • Composite session recording - capture different scenarios in multiple rooms and Viso combines the recordings into one single session.
  • PTZ cameras – capture the students’ behaviors from multiple angles with remotely controlled cameras
  • Codes list to mark events of interest - tag specific points that stand out during training, and easily jump right to those points in the video
  • Playback and debrief – the videos are immediately available to provide valuable feedback to the students

 

Use an audio/video solution for training and debriefing

A clinical simulation lab contains one or more, recording rooms and a training/debriefing room. From the latter room, instructors and students are able to view an ongoing simulation through a one-way mirror or watch a live video feed on the monitors. After the simulation is complete, students are able to watch their simulation as they debrief their completed scenario.

During debriefing, the whole team analyzes the trained situation with the help of the video recordings. The marks made during the training enable the trainer to move quickly to the scenes that need attention.

A commonly used technique during debriefing to improve learning is asking the students to name two things that they thought they did well and two that they can work on. Often, students are startled as soon as they see how they actually performed or what they all said (or not). It becomes clear how they appear to others.

A simulation experience can be very intense and full of impressions. This may cause a student not to be able to recall their actions automatically. That is why using audio/video recordings during debriefing is so important. They enable the students to see and hear what really happened.
