Studies have shown that skills acquired by simulation-based training are transferrable to the operative setting. Research has also shown that VR-based training has a lasting impact on participants because it shows the immediate consequence of decisions and behaviors. It provides invaluable, hands-on experience in identifying and providing treatment for critical situations and learning to be proficient with new techniques and technologies without putting patients in danger.
VR-based training reduces overall training costs by eliminating travel, reducing operational costs and allowing more people to be trained repeatedly and remotely at a marginal cost. Training sessions can also be recorded and used for review, which offers new opportunities for data analytics, tracking and insights.
