SIMmersion Provides PC-Based Simulated Communication Training
Looking for controlled communication based training outside of a Standardized Patient Program? Consider SIMmersion, a computer-based simulation platform providing healthcare communication training opportunities.
Textbooks, e-learning systems, and classroom lectures present content in a rigid structure, and can make it difficult for students to focus on the knowledge they consider relevant. SIMmersion systems let players navigate freely through educational materials to zero in on what matters most to them. Their convenient training portal lets players access our systems online whenever and wherever they want. This flexible approach to learning puts students in control of their own education.
“SIMmersion simulation training users found it easy to use, enjoyed the experience, and thought it realistic and helpful. Almost all described the interview as anxiety provoking but said that the anxiety diminished as they became more skilled. They saw the benefit of its special features such as the Coach and the transcript, and they believed that they could learn the skills being taught through these methods.”
