As well as scenario administration, SimPad PLUS can be used to control the vital signs of a simulated patient, supervise the simulation and provide feedback on students performance by recording every event during a simulation.
By using SimPad PLUS along with pre- programmed scenarios you ensure consistent, standardized training.
This allows students and teachers to repeat the same situation again and again, establishing correct patient care every time.
It is possible to purchase a number of pre-programmed scenarios, specially developed for use with Nursing Anne. Many of these scenarioes are specifically geared towards womens health. It is also possible to tailor the scenarios to meet the needs of individual students. This way every student has the oportunity to meet the relevant clinical requirements.
