Simulation training began to gain strength in the 1930s with the introduction of the first flight simulator. It took until the 1960s for simulation training to enter the world of medicine. Virtual reality training and simulation training really began to increase in the 1980s, which can be related to the proliferation of computers.
Since these early days numerous studies have been conducted. A study carried out at Yale University School of Medicine established that skills learned through virtual reality training can be transferred for use in a real environment. Students who practised using a surgical simulation were able to improve or out-perform those who did not. Non-participants were nine times more likely to fail to make progress.
The largest benefit to trainee medical staff is that virtual reality simulation training allows the trainee to practise and perfect scenarios without involving patients. C-Live enables the users to repeat training scenarios and continue to improve their skills, allowing them to provide the best possible care when it comes to real-life patient relationships.
