In Paramedic Science, we have a unique challenge. We teach real life skills, like laryngoscopy, but many of our students study at a distance! So we needed to work out a way to give our students at a distance more practice. In a delicious piece of irony, through discussions between the School of Medical & Applied Science, School of Engineering & Technology, and staff at Bond University, we discovered that a virtual simulation, using mixed reality and 3d printed paramedic tools, could actually make paramedic practice more real for our students.
