Fusion48 supports the improvement of care for people living with frailty and complex needs through workforce development, service evaluation and redesign.
To increase the reach and impact of their work, they are developing an innovative Virtual Reality based learning product called FrailtySIM. This product is designed to allow staff working in social care services to increase their knowledge of Frailty, develop empathy, and sharpen observational skills in a realistic environment. The learnerled, immersive experience promotes person-centred care and can be carried out at a time and pace to suit the learner’s needs. Deployed for individual or group learning, this innovative application utilises ‘platform agnostic’ software and modern VR hardware, making it flexible and scalable. It opens the world of VR-based vocational learning to a workforce that is pressured for time and struggles to access relevant and effective learning.
