CSRT Industry Education webinar: Draeger Virtuo: Enhancing healthcare training through virtual reality.

April 24, 2024 @ 3:00 p.m. EDT

Are you curious about how Virtual Reality could fit in the future of Respiratory Therapy Education?

Education is a crucial aspect of healthcare and ensuring that learners are well-equipped to handle various situations and challenges is paramount. With ever-growing entry-to-practice scope, Educators are faced with the challenge of building a curriculum that covers didactic requirements while maintaining enough time for hands-on learning. As technology evolves, so do methods of training, and virtual reality (VR) stands out as a game changer. In this webinar we’ll discuss how VR has the potential to revolutionize the way we train healthcare professionals. Draeger’s newest innovation: Draeger Virtuo, was developed in Canada with ongoing collaboration with top local and international Hospitals to bring the highest clinical relevance. Join us and discover how Draeger Virtuo can help your students achieve their learning goals.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify and discuss challenges in healthcare education and training.
  • Discuss innovations and improvements in VR technology and the benefits of virtual reality for healthcare learning.
  • Understand potential challenges in implementing the use of VR technology in healthcare education and how to overcome them.
  • Discuss the future of VR and how it can contribute to the education of Respiratory Therapists.
