AniCura has, in collaboration with a preferred partner, developed an educational learning package dedicated to preventive care.
The package includes theoretical modules and practical simulations and consists of six e-learning sessions:
- Responsible use of medicines
- Preventive health strategies
The simulations are made in the Veterinary Dialogue Trainer (VDT) platform. The partner has developed a method for training communication skills in the safety of the clinic. VDT is a gamified computer simulation which assesses interactions between a veterinarian or veterinary nurse and a pet owner. Challenging topics include, feline obesity awareness and recurrent canine ear infections, among others.
VDT can be played on any device and allows participants to actively practice their skills in a realistic and safe environment. Various simulations can be played and re-played, allowing for numerous situations and topics to be practiced. Data is collected from all simulations, allowing for progress to be objectively measured and monitored. The data offers insight into player choices and highlights where extra knowledge and training are necessary.
