Mini Infusion Pump
Edna Thornton is 68 years old and is suffering from a constant sharp pain in the middle of her back. Her doctor has prescribed medication to alleviate her pain which is to be administered using a mini infusion pump.
This VR simulation involving a virtual patient and a virtual assistant is designed to help healthcare practitioners practice the procedure for setting up and administering medications using a mini infusion pump. Learners will practice the procedure in a safe and controlled multiplayer virtual environment. With both training and assessment modes, learners can perform the procedure and be assessed on the knowledge they have acquired.

Core Skills Training
Mini Infusion Pump
As a part of this Mini Infusion Pump VR simulation, learners are expected to identify oneself and confirm the identity of the patient. The learner will also gather information on substances the patient may be allergic to. Before administering the medication, the learner will educate the patient on the medication, the possible side effects to keep an eye for and steps to take in case of any adverse effects of the medication. The learner will proceed to set up the pump and administer the prescribed medication. The procedure is designed to help learners practice interacting with the patient and working with a virtual assistant to perform the procedure smoothly.
With prompts, guidance and affordances learners are hand-held through the process to practice the procedure in a virtual environment with a virtual patient.
- Photorealistic virtual environment
- Physics-based interactions
- Detailed instructions
- Adequate affordances to assist in task completion
Test acquired skills to perform the procedures from start to finish without prompts. An incorrect step will take the learner back to the start to start afresh.
- Detailed insight of steps performed
- Segregated data of correct and incorrect steps
- Individual performance in multiplayer sessions
- Time tracking to monitor activity completion
