VMASC Predeployment Nursing Trainer
VMASC Predeployment Nursing Trainer is a military medical program that allows player play through various medical scenarios, from how to effectively communicate with team members in the medical facility to where you (as a medical professional) should be standing when treating a patient. Players are also allowed to assess a patient’s condition through the ABC method of assessment. Also included are so-called “interventions” during assessment which are performed along the way, such as giving the patient a bag-valve mask to allow better breathing.
VMASC Predeployment Nursing Trainer was developed in partnership with Old Dominion University and the Virginia Modelling, Analysis, and Simulation Center (VMASC), to create a virtual tool which allows military medical personnel to be trained in how to treat different injuries before they are placed in a war environment. VMASC Predeployment Nursing Trainer allows them to learn how to assess and treat injuries before they have to make such decisions on real patients.
