As new and retired healthcare workers worldwide join the COVID-19 workforce and in support of their training needs, SimTutor Inc is offering access to its library of nearly 200 online simulation-based training modules at special low pricing. These online training simulations can ready graduating students for patient care as well as provide healthcare professionals access to clinical skills refresher or satisfy competency training requirements from any location, anytime.

“We are a proven company with a talented team that wants to provide relief, value and support to healthcare workers fighting the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Clancy Marshall, CEO of SimTutor. “What we know best is simulation training. Our solution can sharpen skills, expand knowledge and prepare the healthcare workforce for the long road ahead. Students, new recruits, the experienced, the retired and the tired will improve and master healthcare procedures in a quiet, low-stress virtual setting to focus on skill-building toward perfecting their medical competence.”

Available Healthcare eLearning Modules

SimTutor is offering affordable pricing and free educator access from its SIMTICS product library to institutions seeking an online simulation solution as an option for students and healthcare workers. The simulations, accessible anywhere and anytime, include a range of healthcare procedures including assessing vital signs, basic life support, arterial line insertion, venipuncture, ultrasound scanning, x-ray procedures and laboratory sample collection. SimTutor’s products are used and trusted by over 150 education institutions in the U.S. and thousands of students and professionals worldwide.

Brian Dickens, MBA, Ph.D., is a long-time academic healthcare program director in Florida and is impacted by the COVID-19 campus closures. He quickly shifted instruction to a virtual format by using SimTutor’s Medical Assisting product as an adjunct to externship, to aid clinical classes, and to allow students to achieve skills check-off so they can prepare to enter the workforce.

“Virtual training is a huge help right now for teaching from home and students not having physical access to equipment for clinical classes,” said Dickens. “We just adopted the SIMTICS modules for our Medical Assisting program and graduating students began using the system within a couple of days. Our Sonography and Phlebotomy programs are using the solution too. These simulation-based resources are great for visual learners, building critical thinking plus students can print certificates from the completed modules for their portfolios.”

SimTutor created three free healthcare procedure simulations for workers caring for patients with infectious diseases: 

  1. Hand hygiene with soap and water
  2. Hand hygiene with hand sanitizer
  3. How to don and doff the required personal protection equipment (PPE) for isolation protocol
