Fidelity, and an Important Announcement

The truth. Reality. Realism. Simulationists, educators and scientists are constantly looking to model products to reflect realistic environments and systems. There are no shortage of options on the market and depending on what the focus is the competition increases.

From DIY spreadsheet EMRs, patient simulators to augmented reality, everyone is looking the next level of realism in training. This is actually a good thing though because the entire premise of simulation is to accurately model reality. In previous posts, we have talked about why realism matters and how technology changes, which brings the medical and healthcare simulation education and training communities to that next level.

With the increasing need to increase the level of realism, I’m excited to announce the release of our ultra-realistic task trainers. The most noticeable features are the feel, textured skin, subcutaneous fat layer and did I mention that the trainers are custom-made according to your organization’s needs? If you need a product that has 4-inch deep wounds and 5 inches long, we can build it. If you need a task trainer for wound packing and need it to respond to treatment therapies, we can help. Each model is robust, durable, made with medical grade products and is skin-safe. Here’s what hospital-based wound care committees are saying after using our products:
Looking for products that take your education and training to the next level? That’s what Amoveo Training Inc. does every day. If your organization is looking for customizable task trainers that models and responds like human tissue, learn more through

Technical Skills and Soft Skills: Why We Should Care

The medical field is pretty challenging and the stakes are high. Errors can be very costly. Simulation-based education in healthcare has made great strides since the 1990s.

While many simulation experiences focus on the technical abilities such as being able to put in an IV on the patient simulator, CPR, etc., is there more to immersive experiences than the application of technical skills? Of course! “Soft skills” are equally important to learn as well.

Observing immersive experiences is fascinating. In a simulated critical situation, teams learn to effectively communicate and every team is different. There are technical skills that are absolutely required, however, we are seeing in literature that teams with clear leadership can improve patient outcomes.

Skills such as effective communication, leadership and collaboration can make a significant difference. A leader that scans the horizon for key issues and can communicate to the team, while involving them based on strengths will be more effective than a team that fights inner battles about trivial issues.

The ability to apply both soft and technical skills that is the key to success. This week, what will you focus on to be a leader? Try something different like asking more questions or lend a helpful hand to a team member. See what works and share the good news.
