Chambre des erreurs : d'une réalité régionale au parcours immersif à 360°

Abstract : Room of horrors are medical simulation tools created 12 years ago in Canada. They allow learners to identify patient care errors (hygiene, patient welfare, drugs…) intentionally added in a reconstituted patient room. These risk management tools allowed the training of tens of thousands of caregivers about risks associated with care giving. They also helped raise awareness among inpatients and users. However, the implementation of these rooms of horrors requires significant human and material resources to renew the scenarios. Moreover, the novelty effect eroding over time, we must think about revised concepts, considering the digital transition of education and health systems. IatroMed 360° is an innovative solution of room of horrors focused on medication errors. This serious game produced by the “association pour le digital et l’information en pharmacie” (ADIPh) used 360° virtual tour and virtual reality. With a smartphone, a tablet or a computer, the learner is immersed in a care unit and has to identify 18 medication errors. The serious-game has been published in 2016. It has been used for initial and continuous training of more than 300 learners, all over the French territory. The satisfaction of learners and trainers confirms the need to sustain the tool and to consider possible variations: a similar room, focused on oncology care and a chemotherapy unit, SimUPAC 360 °, was created in 2017. Other tools are being developed and should help combat adverse events associated with hospitalisation.
