Virtual and Mixed Reality Simulation – Opportunities in Health Education and beyond
  • Room A109, Portland Square Building

Save event

The recent Topol review entitled 'Exploring how to prepare the healthcare workforce, through education and training, to deliver the digital future' recommends that a strategy to train future healthcare professionals should include prioritising time and space to learn, and appropriate forms of CPD, using a combination of face-to-face training, e-learning and virtual/augmented reality (VR/AR).

As part of our research and development work around VR and AR at the University (TELMeD, GSeL, eHealth and Technology), we are committed to ensure that our future graduates are prepared and empowered for the digital future. This workshop forwards our thinking by collaboratively (practitioners and researchers) exploring recent developments in this space across healthcare education which can easily be translated across to other disciplines.
