Research Focus

Optimising stress to maximise learning in healthcare simulation environments

Stress. Its influence on simulation-based healthcare education is ambiguous. At InterSim, the Faculty of Medicine, Health and Life Sciences' simulation facility, Aaron is currently studying the impact of simulation-related stress on an individual's ability to learn and, consequently, perform. Using state-of-the-art biometric technology, this research aims to further understand the human stress response and its potential manipulation in terms of enhancing education in this field.
