SPSM chats about avatar based training simulations for suicide risk assessment and intervention training, 1/27/18, 9pCT.
SPSM is no stranger to discussing avatar based digital experiences. Discussing early applications of virtual therapy environments in Second Life, chatting with Dr. Melissa Pinto about virtual primary care visit experiences, or participating in AAS panels on the impact of digital media on the future of suicide prevention…this is a topic on our minds.
In fact, you can watch a nifty video demo by one of @DocForeman’s co-panelists (or even try one out):
Avatar based simulation learning addresses core training issues in suicide prevention related to scale and training portability. However, creating these trainings is a complex process, with significant front loading of costs, and requires a multi-disciplinary team, including:
- Subject matter experts (inclusive of Lived Expertise)
- Training and accreditation experts
- Digital designers
- System/platform administration
- Media/deployment/strategy experts
