Duke University School of Medicine is teaming up with Virtual Heroes, a software simulation company out of Raleigh, North Carolina, to utilize the firm’s HumanSim package as a tool for “healthcare team communication training; medical device and pharma product education; patient education; medical recertification; clinical trial education; CME courses; and healthcare quality assurance training.” Potential applications of HumanSim from the product page:  Initial patient assessment (quality)  Measurement of clinical competence  Cognitive and clinical performance under stress  Immediate feedback using digital afteraction-review (AAR) system  Statistics tracking system linked through AAR to Learning Management System (LMS)  Team Training and Cross Training (e.g. pediatric and adult care staff)  Practice of new or complicated skills or technologies without endangering patient health or safety  Dynamic Virtual Human Technology™ using embedded physiologicpharmacologic model provides real time, patient state transitions based on user inputs.  Learning modules include defined learning objectives and instructor notes for self paced individual instruction or team training.  Delivery platform includes notebook PC and game consoles.
