Tuesday, July 14, 12 pm ET / 9 am PT
Join ACH for a webinar with Antoinette Schoenthaler, EdD, FACH, and colleagues from Kognito, a virtual human simulation company, as we explore how virtual humans are helping build provider communication skills. We will share the latest research on the relationship of people with virtual humans, examine how virtual humans have been successfully utilized to provide practice in relationship-centered communication skills, and discuss best practices for integrating virtual human simulations to enhance in-person and online training workshops.
The webinar will include a demonstration of a simulation and data from a new meta-analysis of 600+ healthcare providers who completed virtual human simulations. All webinar registrants will receive a link to a virtual human simulation after the webinar to explore the interactive experience.
