SIMOONS, health simulation at Vall d’Hebron
We innovate in skills training for healthcare professionals through training experiences that permit virtual interaction with users.
What is SIMOONS?
SIMOONS (Serious Game for onlinetraining with healthcare simulation) is aserious game aimed at professionals working in healthcare. It allows professionals to train using interactive virtual simulation experiences that challenge users. This facilitates training and improves the healthcare team’s preparation for providing safe and effective patient care.
At the Vall d’Hebron Centre for Advanced Clinical Simulation-Teaching Department, we are leaders in the field of simulation, innovating in virtual simulation training programmes. With SIMOONS we are investing in promoting learning through serious games.
A new way of learning
SIMOONS covers 75% of the Edgar Dale Pyramid.
Innovating in simulation:
The platform currently offers nine online simulation modules available in two formats.
Two to eight professionals can participate and interact at the same time. This requires a facilitator connected to the simulation, who follows the session and guides the briefing and debriefing.
This mode is prepared for the participant to do the activity individually, autonomously achieving the objectives and obtaining personalised feedback.
Biosafety and sample management for improved healthcare
What is the Centre for Advanced Clinical Simulation?
The Vall d’Hebron Centre for Advanced Clinical Simulation is a unit specialising in the use of simulation in training modules as a model for efficient training.
We work to facilitate simulation-related healthcare, educational, research and innovation activities that have a direct impact on improving healthcare quality and patient safety, as well as enhancing simulation-related innovative educational methodologies.
