Clinical training has advanced over the years, and now with the adoption of technology we are able to accelerate human capability via precision simulation using virtual reality (VR) and as a result, advance pre-human competence in surgery and additional clinical environments to improve patient outcomes.
This session will discuss the value of VR and haptic technology environments and experiences that allow for skills development and transfer, allowing users to physically interact with a virtual patient. Haptic technology enables users to develop the knowledge of how it feels to perform a procedure correctly or incorrectly – helping to build muscle memory that is particularly important in advanced and precise surgical environments.
The session will cover the growing body of scientific evidence which demonstrates the value of VR vs. Traditional Training across various specialties. Moreover, how the value of Haptic feedback has been proven in multiple studies across various disciplines.
