Learn More about SimConverse
New technology is exciting, but it doesn’t belong everywhere. As educators we need technology that serves a theory-based purpose.
As researchers and PhD candidates it was obvious to us that healthcare curricula across the world all have one unifying issue...
We haven't been training communication as a skill.
We’ve built SimConverse to address this with training for Verbal Communication.
You need to consider skills-based learning theory in 3 steps:
Here’s an example using training for cannulation:
When we start training someone to cannulate we don’t just give them a needle and say “take a stab at that patient over there - you’ll work it out”.
Rather we coach them through this 3 step learner journey.
So, what’s so wrong with communication skills training?
To date, we’ve been missing a Step 2. By having learners speak directly with another person we are forcing an unfocused overload of their learning with non-verbal cues, para-verbal cues and management protocols.
It’s time we had a Step 2 in Communication Skills Training.
SimConverse is your Step 2.
We’ve trained our proprietary AI to understand the english language and then we provide it with ‘context’ of whatever role it’s playing.
If that sounds awfully similar to how actors might play characters that’s because it is!
This technological flexibility is why we’re used across any faculty, for any level of learner, wherever they may be located.
Perform any action and have the
patients dynamically change.
Have your learners act out anything, from ordering investigations, to interpreting results and practising their Health Record entries.
It’s difficult to overstate the importance of reflection for our learners.
SimConverse provides unparalleled communication skills training feedback and assessment for all learners to reflect on and improve.
Utilise the transcript for debriefing, through to self-reflection, assessments or summative submissions.
Use our AI to populate your rubrics and unlock scalable formative and summative assessments for your institution.
