CTD Health is a training program in which healthcare personnel can get immersive mass training in basic medical skills, interdisciplinary interaction, and communication. In our virtual world, healthcare personnel can train when they want, as often as they want, and with whom they want – time efficient and without costly course or travel expenses. The only prerequisite is a VR headset and a subscription to our services.
Mass training in observational and assessment competenceCTD Health facilitates mass training in basic medical skills and observational competence. When basic competence is achieved, the next step is to continue practicing procedures such as ABCDE, NEWS2 and ISBAR to be able to conduct structured observations and communication. Through simulation training in concrete scenarios trainees will have their competence thoroughly put to the test.
ABCDEQuick and systematic examination
NEWS2The scoring system NEWS2.
«My experience with CTD Health was that the training situation was so realistic that I felt I was training on a real person in a real environment. I was surprised at how lifelike it was.
I strongly believe that this will supplement today's traditional training methods, and that it can enable more people to train more often. VR technology can be an important contribution to increasing competence in the health service.»
- Anne Kristin Ihle Melby, senior adviser at the Norwegian Directorate of Health
Management toolsIn the web portal CTD Portal, managers have an overview of registered devices and access to user data from training. CTD Health collects data anonymously to give insight into how often training occurs, what is practiced and scoring on an aggregated level. In this way, manageres are able to map out strengths and weaknesses, and encourage training in areas where weaknesses are identified.
