Project

Technological advancements have influenced clinical simulation for the training of “non-technical” skills (decision-making, communication, etc.) through“high-fidelity simulation”. However, these advancements have had a very limited impact on “low-fidelity simulation” used for the training of technical skills. In this kind of simulation, the student learns to perform the corresponding techniques using task trainers that reproduce a part of the human body. When students practice invasive techniques (that is techniques that imply the “invasion” of some part of the body with needles, tubes or other devices) using this type of task trainers, they make the effort of imagining the internal anatomical structures, something essential in order to perform this type of invasive techniques. In this way, the ability to visualize these structures will improve the understanding of these techniques and might be an important added value for student learning.
