The 2021 International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) clinical simulation presentation titled “Should Healthcare Follow Aviation & Require Periodic Testing” described how to integrate aviation concepts and techniques into healthcare simulation for ongoing, periodic, summative evaluation and training. Authored by Teresa Gore, Tim Whitaker and Andrew Spain, the healthcare simulation presentation also compared and [...]
Labster is a healthcare simulation company that develops advanced medical lab courses founded on mathematical algorithms that support open-ended investigations. The company’s simulated lab courses combine the open-ended investigations with gamification elements such as an immersive 3D universe, story-telling and a scoring system.
Leveraging technology, Labster creates scalable science training software with increased learning outcomes and [...]
In healthcare the methodology of simulation, while by no means new, is globally underdeveloped when compared to other high-stakes performance industries such as the military, aviation, mining, space travel, oil and gas and more. As such, learning from other industries that have fully adopted simulation, to the point of simulators that are literally regulated by [...]
Growing evidence shows a significant link between repetitive practice, content retention, and academic performance—which is why forward-thinking healthcare educators are looking for concrete ways to jumpstart learners’ comprehension, intuition, and long-term retention abilities. Designed to primarily educate and secondarily entertain, serious games and gamified learning environments place users in an environment where “play” leads to [...]
