  1. 1. Using the Virtual Reality World of Second Life for Teaching and Clinical Care Betsy Weiner, PhD, RN-BC, FACMI, FAAN Senior Associate Dean for Informatics Vanderbilt University School of Nursing
  2. 2. Funded Grant – Weiner, PI <ul><li>$1.6 million from the US Department of Health and Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration </li></ul><ul><li>Innovative Nurse Education Technologies Program </li></ul><ul><li>Three Year Grant (Vanderbilt and University of Kentucky) </li></ul><ul><li>Consultants – Dr. Pamela Jeffries, Dr. Shelia Decker </li></ul>
  3. 3. Weiner Grant Team Vanderbilt University University of Kentucky Betsy Weiner, PI Suzanne Prevost SL Team Simulation Team Carla Beals Demetrius Abshire Christy Benson Kate Moore Jeff Gordon Jimmy Self Continuing Education : Hazel Chappel Trish Trangenstein Simulation Team : Sally Miller
  4. 4. Purpose of Grant <ul><li>Teach nursing faculty how to manage clinical simulations while advancing their own competency and proficiency levels of simulation management </li></ul><ul><li>Design geriatric simulations using the virtual reality world of Second Life </li></ul>
  5. 5. Simulation Competencies <ul><li>Needed to be developed </li></ul><ul><li>Areas of: Plans simulations; Participates in simulations; Provides debriefing and reflection; and Evaluates simulation. </li></ul><ul><li>Additional competencies developed for Simulation Coordinator/Specialist </li></ul>
  6. 6. Second Life <ul><li>www.secondlife.com </li></ul><ul><li>A 3D virtual world created by its residents </li></ul><ul><li>Driven by interactions of real-world individuals and their inworld residents or avatars </li></ul>
  7. 7. Second Life Competencies <ul><li>Getting Started Tasks </li></ul><ul><li>Intermediate Tasks </li></ul><ul><li>Social Tasks </li></ul>
  8. 8. NURSIM4U Island <ul><li>Conference Center </li></ul><ul><li>Where Faculty (as students) begin their experience by choosing location of simulation (outpatient, inpatient, nursing home, home) and one of 12 simulations designed to meet Hartford Geriatric Competencies </li></ul>
  9. 9. Outpatient – Eskind Diabetes Center
  10. 10. Inpatient – Critical Care Tower

  15. 15. Results <ul><li>Complex scripting, even using NLN template </li></ul><ul><li>Using real plans for buildings created claustrophobic feeling in some spaces </li></ul><ul><li>Crowded for observation of simulation activities </li></ul><ul><li>SL competencies too advanced </li></ul><ul><li>Formal pilot test not yet completed </li></ul>
  16. 16. Conclusion <ul><li>SL is one creative solution to synchronous learning </li></ul><ul><li>SL environments can be used for multiple purposes </li></ul><ul><li>This SL outpatient facility is currently being used to pilot test the delivery of maintenance care of diabetic patients by nurse practitioners </li></ul>
