Sneak peek: AMEE 2017, “The power to surprise” – Get ready for Body Interact pediatrics scenarios

The countdown for the International Association for Medical Education 2017’s event (AMEE 2017) has started and Body Interact team can’t wait to be in Helsinki, Finland.
Following this year’s theme, “The power to surprise”, Body Interact is officially launching pediatrics scenarios!

“AMEE 2017 gathers worldwide health care professionals and educators, and also students and medical/nursing simulation enthusiasts. It’s a great event to have fruitful networking, establish new bonds, and share knowledge. When we were in Barcelona (AMEE2016), we felt the passion and excitement around Body Interact, so I truly believe AMEE 2017’s attendees will love our pediatrics scenarios as well. Actually, they have been asked us for this specialty since then”, said Pedro Pinto, CEO of Body Interact Inc.

Besides pediatrics, Body Interact is going to have several nursing and medical scenarios available; a Body Interact selfies competition (Will you accept the challenge to be our winner?); and some treats for the attendees.

If you have never tried Body Interact, grab this chance to meet the team at AMEE 2017 and have a hands-on session! See you soon at booth ES5?

Body Interact – Anywhere, anytime

What if your educational tool was always available?
Sounds like a good idea?

Body Interact makes use of the latest technologies to extend experiential learning, and empower medical and nursing education, outside school.
If your institution has a Sim Center that includes a Body Interact touch tabletop but you would like to have some extra time, to run a simulation after the regular time schedule, don’t think that is an impossible idea.

As long as your organization has Body Interact student licenses, you can test your skills or review any scenario, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, by log in Body Interact with your individual credentials, via web browser, on your computer or laptop.
Drop us a line to find out more details.

¡Hola Mexico! Body Interact at ACC Latin America Conference

The Latin America Conference 2017, promoted by the American College of Cardiology and the Mexican Society of Cardiology, took place last month in Mexico City. Body Interact has been chosen, once again, to emphasize the interactive educational hands-on sessions with cardiologists across the region.

Educational topics included not only acute coronary syndrome, heart failure, valvular disease and prevention, but also hands-on practice and skill building in auscultation, ECG interpretation and clinical decision making, using Body Interact virtual simulated patients.

Attendees brought very interesting issues and questions, allowing us to have fruitful discussions around the table.
Thanks for stopping by, we hope to see you soon!

Body Interact has new debriefing tools available

After being immersed in such an engaging experience like Body Interact, a close analysis is truly important to empower your clinical reasoning.

Don’t think our scenarios end when you choose the most likely diagnosis.
After testing your skills with Body Interact, you can review your path during the entire simulation.

Body Interact debriefing tools include distinct features to show what you have done, from the beginning to the end. You can not only review your actions, step by step, minute by minute, but also to analyze your scores, check the scientific references, and even rate the scenario you have run.

Debriefing is a crucial part of experiential learning. With our detailed reports of action and performance, you will be able to receive all the information needed to better understand what you have made and what you should improve.

Give it a try by scheduling a demo with our team. We will gladly show you how everything works!

Online Acute Ischemic Stroke Simulation Program, with full CME / CE accreditation

American Heart Association/American Stroke Association and Body Interact launched an online Acute Ischemic Stroke Simulation Program, with full CME / CE accreditation available.

Test your clinical assessment and critical thinking skills while you evaluate and manage a variety of patients, experiencing acute ischemic stroke. In a set of 4 modules, you will be immersed in a Body Interact 3-D environment where you will interact with a life-like virtual patient, complete dynamic monitoring, dialogue, diagnostic testing, drugs, intervention options and performance debriefing.

Body Interact has different time limits to run a simulation

Body Interact simulation can be ran in 10, 15, 20, or 25 minutes. How much time would you like to spend?
You may be thinking “10 minutes to run a case? Sounds hard and it must require super-fast skills to solve everything on time!” Actually, when a teacher chooses 10 minutes of simulation, he probably wants to request simple tasks from his students.
For example: a patient is in front of your eyes, sweating and mumbling. What is the correct approach if you only have 10 minutes?
Can you talk to him to obtain some details about his health condition? Which vital signs should you monitor? Should you request any kind of test or exam? Do you have to call for a fellow specialist?

Different time limits of simulation allow for different clinical objectives and different possibilities to explore clinical reasoning.
10 minutes of simulation doesn’t mean that a case is going to run faster. If you really want to try to solve a case, from beginning to end, you should choose at least 15 minutes.

Of course there are scenarios where action takes place more quickly. If you are facing a sepsis, you really need to think and act fast, otherwise your patient’s health will aggravate drastically!
Our best piece of advice for students? Even if you are being put to the test, take a deep breath, trust your gut feeling, and try to enjoy the ride. At the end, we are sure you will improve your reasoning skills with the certainty that no one gets harmed

Body Interact, “The greatest tool” – Testimonial by a Nursing Student @ Houston Community College

Body Interact, “The greatest tool” – Testimonial by a Nursing Student @ Houston Community College

The best audience to talk about Body Interact is the one made by our worldwide end-users.

In Houston – USA, Body Interact integrates the Virtual SimLab of Houston Community College (HCC). Check out this exciting feedback from one of their Nursing students. PS: thank you!

«I had the opportunity to experience the new Virtual SimLab at HCC. It truly was a unique approach, being able to apply the material we have learned in both lecture and clinical ways.

As students we can be a bit restricted on what we can perform while in clinical. (Of course we understand that it is because of the patient’s safety, but there is nothing compared to on-hands learning.) The Virtual SimLab allowed me to act as a nurse, and not just as a “student nurse”. With two other partners, we actually got to think like a nurse and choose which actions would lead to the best results for the patient. We got to apply the steps of the nursing process, select medications and interventions that we thought would improve the patient and see whether the predicted outcome was in fact correct. We are constantly told that nursing involves critical thinking and in my experience in nursing school, this is one of the few times I felt like I was thinking critically.

The technology was very impressive and having to tackle the patient scenario with other students made it feel as if you were really a nurse, collaborating with others of the team to optimize patient care/safety. I think if students had access to this in every semester, with the scenarios tailored to the necessary learning needs for that specific level, it would be the greatest tool – to practice what you are taught and be sure it is understood and not just information that has been memorized. (The only negative thing I have to say about the Virtual SimLab is that I did not have enough time to use it!

I hope every nursing student has the privilege to use the Virtual SimLab in the upcoming semesters! »
