Among other things, simulation in healthcare makes use of high-fidelity mannequins, simulators, surgical robots, virtual reality, standardised patients and serious games.
It enables health professionals to reproduce care situations and environments, teach diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, and simulate decision-making.
Which makes it an interprofessional, multidisciplinary continuous training centre of excellence in healthcare simulation, recognised by all health professionals who wish to enhance their skills.
Calling themselves into question and participating in advanced training programmes prepare learners to carry out their procedures better in order to ensure greater safety of patients.
Hospital doctors, private practitioners, nurses, physiotherapists, radiographers, pharmacists, etc.
Be guided by our commitment to excellence, innovation and our professional values: work, reappraisal, altruism and good treatment.
Putting simulation-based training at the service of patients’ safety.
The health professional will no longer just be a lifelong health professional. And the student will no longer be the health professional of yesteryear… Both will have to be lifelong learners.

as it ensures patient safety, acquisition of automatisms and acquisition of skills all at the same time. Simulation trains health professionals who are more confident because they’re more sure of their skills; it enables them to acquire greater mastery of procedures by measuring themselves against numerous case studies.
Hence, health professionals can focus more on their patients, listen to them, and provide them with highly personalised treatment.
Management of crisis situations, identification of blocking situations, team functioning (communication, leadership, etc.), assessment of materials made available, handling new equipment, etc.
Learning in an environment that reproduces levels of urgency, complications and even the uncertainty connected with real medical treatments as exactly as possible, but without resulting in irreparable consequences.
“The only limit to situations and case studies that can be simulated is our own creativity”.
Located on Nancy-Brabois’ Health Campus, Lorraine Virtual Hospital makes over 3,000 m² of fully equipped surface area available for simulation in healthcare.
