Title Ground-breaking conflict simulator helps train budding nurses Country Australia Date 25/11/19 Description A world-first virtual reality (VR) simulation is helping train nursing students at the University of Newcastle in conflict resolution.
The Conflict Resolution training VR program replicates a real-world emergency room and asks students to respond to a high-pressure mock scenario.
As part of the Bachelor of Nursing, students undertaking their mental health module are immersed via VR headset. Faced with ‘Angry Stan’, an avatar based on real-world interactions, users must remain calm and navigate a range of challenges to manage the situation.
