Mass casualty triage for first responders

  1. Resource Description
    "In natural and man made disasters, early and accurate intervention is crucial in saving lives and improving outcomes. Training first responders to perform optimally in stressful situations is an important public health objective. Traditional training methods often require large scale field exercises, vast amounts of resources, and can only be performed at limited times a year. This program ties together a didactic curriculum, manikin simulation, and Virtual Reality training to give learners "hands-on" experience in dealing with a variety of clinical situations that might be encountered in a mass casualty situation. At the Telehealth Research Institute, we believe that training with manikin and VR simulations facilitate access to working with "life-like" patients. Triage in an immersive VE can simulate decision-making in a stressful field environment, while providing first responders with the experience needed for life and limb sparing care."
