Abstract

The generation currently entering the NHS workforce are digitally experienced and expect to use technology in both work and education settings. Current anaphylaxis training for new staff consists of a one hour lecture by a Clinical Educator using a series of PowerPoint slides. Knowledge retention and skills are not tested as there is no opportunity to do so. Therefore this project aims to enhance knowledge and retention through the use of VR scenario training displayed withing this demonstration.
