“I remember feeling nervous when I had to perform my first intravenous (IV) cannulation on a patient. This motivated me and my colleagues from the Institute of Advanced Nursing to develop the NIMBLE (Nursing Innovation in Mobility-based Learning) IV cannulation system, a serious game which replicates real-life scenarios and provides real-time feedback for nurses training in the procedure.
Nurses can hone their healthcare communication and critical thinking skills by conversing with a virtual patient. During the game, they will don a smart glove with woven-in sensors that tracks the motion and pressure applied on a 3D printed arm, which can be varied to mimic different patient profiles, allowing for more efficient and objective assessment.
Looking ahead, I hope to see more of how technology and innovation can plug the gaps in the way we train and assess our nurses.”
