SIMULATION TRAINING CENTER

HÔPITAL VIRTUEL DE LORRAINE
“for a High Value Level"

Among other things, simulation in healthcare makes use of high-fidelity mannequins, simulators, surgical robots, virtual reality, standardised patients and serious games.
It enables health professionals to reproduce care situations and environments, teach diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, and simulate decision-making. 

Lorraine Virtual Hospital provides 6 simulation platforms

Simulation-based learning is essential…

as it ensures patient safety, acquisition of automatisms and acquisition of skills all at the same time. Simulation trains health professionals who are more confident because they’re more sure of their skills; it enables them to acquire greater mastery of procedures by measuring themselves against numerous case studies.

Hence, health professionals can focus more on their patients, listen to them, and provide them with highly personalised treatment. 

Combining knowledge of health sector professions with simulation enables reproduction of complex situations as close as possible to reality…

Management of crisis situations, identification of blocking situations, team functioning (communication, leadership, etc.), assessment of materials made available, handling new equipment, etc.

Learning in an environment that reproduces levels of urgency, complications and even the uncertainty connected with real medical treatments as exactly as possible, but without resulting in irreparable consequences. 

“The only limit to situations and case studies that can be simulated is our own creativity”.

Located on Nancy-Brabois’ Health Campus, Lorraine Virtual Hospital makes over 3,000 m² of fully equipped surface area available for simulation in healthcare.
