Is our VR solutions as good as training with real patients?

This misconception persists to some extent. Progress has been made from the old fashioned “see one, do one, teach one” style of education in healthcare. It is now widely recognised that for safety and ethical reasons it is not appropriate to learn the techniques on real patients. Using VR simulation, students are empowered to immerse themselves in realistic situations without safety concerns for themselves or their patients and without worrying about mistakes that could harm patients.
