    Greetings Distance Sim Friends!!

    We are working on compiling resources for those offering distance simulation experiences so thought I'd reach out to all of you and ask: What simulation software platforms have you found most valuable for distance healthcare simulation, and why?

    I'll share one I have used that I really like and especially because it is free and because there are plenty of scenarios ready to go, thanks to those who have created them and offered them for use. Check out Virtual Resus Room. It's easy to use and you can create your own sim scenarios based on your needs. It is collaborative, interactive, and the facilitator controls patient status changes based on the actions of the partcipants. 

    There's also an Innovation Report on it's use and a demo video on the website along with resources for free scenarios. 

    So, what sim software have you used for distance sim delivery? Tell us all about it and we will list it in our Distance Simulation Affinity Group Library!

    Hello Cynthia and all,

    I really like this tool as well. It is a great way to do an activity with students who are not geographically close to one another. Yesterday I went to an information session on Virtual Friday Night at the ER. I have used the table - top version of this game so many times, but was really interested in their new product vFNER. Having now seen what they have created I am even more excited about it. I hope to be able to use it soon. Maybe we could run a session of FNER with members of this group? Anyone interested in doing a FNER session virtually as some point during the year? The game is not free, but the price is reasonable.

    Hi All,

    I am interested in vFNER.

    I also just downloaded a free auscultation and sonography app on my work Oculus units; it is basic but I though good for early learners and those who need support. They have some other apps as well. https://provenreality.com/simbios/
