Skin Adhesive Placement
Robert Garcia is a 57-year old male who has suffered a laceration on his forehead. He is waiting for a skin adhesive placement procedure. As a healthcare practitioner your job is to educate him on the procedure and perform the adhesive placement following approved clinical standards.
In this multiplayer VR simulation, users practice the skin adhesive placement procedure in realistic environments. It contains both training and assessment modes to help learners not only practice but also assess their skills.
- Explain skin adhesive procedure to a virtual patient
- Demonstrate sterile technique while setting up sterile field
- Demonstrate standard technique of cleansing wound
- Demonstrate standard technique of applying skin adhesive
- Explain aftercare instructions to patient

Core Skills Training
The learners will begin the module with confirming the identity of the patient, asking him for this consent, and educating him on the risks involved. An assessment of the wound needs to be performed and determined that bleeding has stopped. This will be followed by cleaning and drying the wound before applying the skin adhesive. Having applied the adhesive, the used packaging needs to be discarded and hand hygiene performed. The learners will then educate the patient on post-procedure care and precautions.
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.
- Live scoring
- Instant feedback
- Adequate affordances for efficient performance
- Time tracking to monitor activity completion
