OVERVIEW: Effectively Using Virtual Simulations

Government Technology reports about the emerging use of virtual simulations (read that: “video games”) for effective training in the Public Health arena.
The article (“Virtual Worlds Help Public Safety Officials Practice for Real-Life Threats”) outlines simulation use by California Department of Health Services, in conjunction with the University of California-Davis Health System; U.S. Department of Defense; Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center; Duke University School of Medicine; the Emergency Management Training, Analysis and Simulation Center (EMTASC); and Virginia Emergency Response Team Exercise.
In short, the article outlines how more and more institutions are implementing virtual 3D simulations to help facilitate and supplement effective training and education with Public Health in mind.
