This solution guides students through therapeutic communication techniques and provides them with repeated opportunities to engage in key client conversations, including those with high-risk clients, where students learn and practice communication techniques that drive change in client behavior. Leading-edge Virtual Interactions immerse students in situations with clients where they learn, practice, and apply therapeutic communication skills in a safe, virtual, simulated clinical environment.

 

The Communicator 2.0 promotes student competency in: 



Patient-centered care



Teamwork & collaboration



Evidence-based practice



Patient & provider safety



Informatics

New! ATI Virtual Interactions

We know nursing students are often limited in opportunities to practice using therapeutic communication techniques and navigate difficult, high-risk client situations. Because of this, ATI has launched a new generation of virtual simulations featured in The Communicator 2.0 that allows students to assume the role of a nurse caring for a variety of high-risk clients. These Virtual Interactions promote:

  • Deeper learning for students in a safe, virtual environment as they use active learning to communicate with emotionally responsive virtual humans.
  • Student confidence as they engage in a unique learning experience, using and exploring different therapeutic communication techniques in a safe learning environment with the ability to “undo” and retry choices threaded throughout simulations.
  • Student preparedness through exposure and experience with repeated opportunities to practice therapeutic communication skills in high-risk, low-volume client situations.
  • Easy and convenient access for students to learn and practice from home, in a classroom or in a lab – all from the screen of a computer. A great solution for lost clinical time and limited clinical or simulation space.
  • Easy facilitation with limited support needed from faculty. A virtual coach guides students through their decisions, providing feedback and support based on their selections. Reporting and consistency in various scenarios provides educators with greater insight to effectively debrief and observe student mastery.

Simulations:

  1. Clients and Their Nutritional Needs
  2. Adolescent Clients and Performance Enhancement Substances
  3. Adult Clients Misusing Alcohol
  4. Adolescent Clients at Risk for Suicide
  5. Adult Clients at Risk for Medication Misuse and Suicide
