High-fidelity Human Patient Simulation

Dr. Madeline Press










High fidelity simulation is a teaching innovation that enables students to learn in a safe environment. The students practice on a manikin and are able to learn from their mistakes. The patient is not put at risk from student mistakes. This research enhances patient safety by allowing students to practice skills and build competency without causing harm.

Discovery: Research Study – 3D Motion detection and capture in simulation learning.
