Farra, S., Hodgson, E., Miller, E. et al. (2019). Effects of Virtual Reality Simulation on Worker Emergency Evacuation of Neonates. (Abstract only.) Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness. 13(2):301–308.
The authors compared learning outcomes (i.e., knowledge gained; confidence with evacuation; and performance in a live exercise) among newborn intensive care unit (NICU) workers who underwent virtual reality simulation (VRS) emergency evacuation training versus those who received web-based clinical updates (CU). Those in the VRS cohort performed significantly better than those in the CU cohort.
