Medical malpractice can not only ruin your reputation but change a person’s life without their willingness. With this in mind, it is unquestionably a priority to provide medical staff with premium healthcare training.
Simulation and roleplay training have proven their effectiveness to enhance staff in roles such as sales, leadership and management roles as well as teaching. Correspondingly, these methods of training are just as effective for healthcare training, in addition to social care training. This is proven by a Yale University study. It established that skills learned through virtual reality training can be transferred for use in a real environment. Students who practiced 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 practice and perfect scenarios without involving patients. Immersion Studio enables users to repeat training scenarios and continue to improve their skills. Therefore allowing them to provide the best possible care when it comes to real-life patient relationships.
Moreover, you can find out more about the different types of training below.
Simulation training is not new to social worker training. The traditional role-play and standardised patient simulation have formed part of social worker training for many years, with great effectiveness. What’s more, Immersion Studio fully immerses those training into realistic scenarios, enabling them to try classroom methodologies and new techniques in a safe and secure environment. Immersion Studio places trainees in challenging, emotional and confrontational situations integrating immediate feedback and insights to improve practices and help achieve professional capability.
Medical Professionals Soft Skills Training
A doctors’ soft skills are equally as important as their clinical and medical skills and knowledge. A doctor’s ability to communicate with patients, often through the most difficult points in their lives, can be critical to the care patients receive and how well they cooperate with their treatment.
Immersion Studio is the ideal platform to deliver this style of medical training. Within Immersion Studio, medical students, junior doctors and medical educators can converse in real-time with patient avatars. It provides a natural patient-practitioner dialogue, providing training scenarios for patient assessment, diagnosis and managing difficult conversations.
Since the introduction of the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006, all organisations that come into contact with children and vulnerable adults should have policies and procedures in place. This includes voluntary and community organisations, faith groups and private sectors providers, as well as schools, hospitals and sports clubs.
Immersion Studio supports care and health providers with continued professional development and initial training to aid them in providing a person-centred, outcome-based approach.
Leadership and Management Conversations

Immersion Studio helps cement learning into your DNA.RBH Hospitality
It was the very first time I have ever experienced this kind of technology. It was fabulous the way you become so engrossed with the subject.
Its a real life situation with human feedback. Makes sense in a world where face to face training can be expensive.
I love the responsiveness and how ‘live’ it actually feels. I felt really comfortable taking the conversation in any direction.BT Group
You can get so immersed in it. It’s brilliant!Brighter Talent
Connect Training gives our Bath Spa teachers the opportunity to enhance their own professional practice in a safe, risk-free yet realistic environment.Benton Brown, Head of Initial Teacher Training at Bath Spa University
It’s so real!Ashorne Hill
The Connect Training technology proved to be very user-friendly and accessible and the Connect Training facilitator/actors/avatars were well informed in generating very convincing simulations.June Bianchi, Senior Lecturer in Art Education Bath Spa University
I love the fact that the avatars can comment on your body language because often it’s not what you say, it’s what you’re doing.The Hotel Folk
I just wanted to say a very big THANK YOU for the session. I think you probably saw that, after some initial apprehension, everyone really engaged with the scenarios. The characters were very realistic, not pushovers and the scenarios developed really well - thank you!Frances, Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust
It was an amazing experience which in my opinion should become an automatic part of teacher training. There are so many reports that cite low-level disruption as a problem to teachers and many trainee teachers who admit to a lack of confidence in managing behaviour.Jane, Student Teacher at Bath Spa University
