Cardiovascular and respiratory diseases are responsible for almost every second death in Germany. Patients suffering from these groups of diseases are also among the most frequent reasons for the deployment of emergency medical services and for visits to hospital emergency rooms. A national consortium consisting of media didactics experts, technology experts, and partners from the professional practice of emergency medical services and emergency care is researching innovative solutions for vocational training in the project ViTAWiN (Virtual-augmented training for education and training in inter-professional emergency care).
In a sub-project, Fraunhofer IESE is responsible for the target group analysis, the development of the medical didactic design, as well as the development of the evaluation design and management of the evaluations of the transfer into practice. The goals are, on the one hand, to increase the degree of reality and the effectiveness of emergency medical training and to open up the market for VR-/AR-supported training in medicine and, on the other hand, to expand our own expertise and competencies in the development and implementation of VR-/AR-supported simulation environments.
