VR for difficult patient conversations

"Bedside manner" is where many technically skilled doctors can fall short, so it’s also important to provide VR training in the types of tough conversations they’re likely to come across. 

In Kognito’s simulation game, medical students from the-clinx.com/clinical-continuing-educational-credentialing-courses-online and doctors can role-play critical health care conversations with virtual, animated patients that can respond in real-time to your words. Scenarios featured in the game include talking to a child about substance abuse, a student in psychological distress, a patient considering suicide, or a patient who isn’t compliant with taking medication.

We saw another important use case for VR education with the rise of COVID-19 last year when many medical schools went on hiatus or shifted to a virtual model. 

Key benefits of VR medical training

VR technology presents the opportunity to provide a huge variety of simulated learning experiences in the medical field. That helps students gain confidence in their skills, and provides the opportunity to provide unlimited training sessions in which their performance can be measured and assessed. 

By incorporating VR technologies and apps into a medical learning environment, whether remote or in-person, medical schools and facilities can ensure that their practitioners are ready for all the real-world challenges that may lie ahead in their careers.
