Post-Op Pediatric Clinical Simulation


The Post-Op Pediatric Clinical Simulation is a virtual interactive game, designed to augment the teaching of postoperative and pediatric assessment skills. With this resource, learners will 'practice' skills, techniques and critical thinking in a virtual environment.

By replicating a real-life situation in a virtual simulation, users can practice their skills in a realistic setting and make clinical decisions within a safe environment. The virtual interactive game has the potential to improve the learners’ retention of knowledge and promote active learning, problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
