Dialysis Education Services and Lifeliqe partner to train vital nephrology workforce through VR

Share

We're happy to announce that we're joining forces with Dialysis Education Services, a board-certified vocational school that trains thousands of dialysis technicians throughout the country. Our aim is to help solve the staffing shortages plaguing dialysis centers nationwide by scaling technician training through a hybrid in-person and VR curriculum. Below, read our join press release. 

The US is facing a healthcare training crisis for a number of reasons, including lack of access to in-person training during COVID-19 and industry churn, which has resulted in the inability to fill positions. By merging traditional face-to-face teaching with simulation technology, Dialysis Education Services plans to train technicians to fill critical nephrology workforce vacancies with skilled talent. 

The virtual training, which students can complete on demand at their own pace, includes 3D models to simulate the skills required to work in a dialysis clinic, without the fear of making a mistake. Students can do the dialysis simulation in VR as many times as they need to learn about abstract scientific concepts and practice key skills, reducing error rates during certification. Dialysis Education Services also provides Lifelique’s VR training to dialysis organizations to maintain and enhance their technicians’ skills as a part of their continued education.     

“As the labor shortage cripples the nation’s dialysis facilities, we have been looking to scale our nationally approved hemodialysis training program to meet the need. Lifelique’s VR simulation training is so close to reality that a student can get training that exceeds industry standards more efficiently and cost-effectively,” says Michael Morales, chief executive officer of Dialysis Education Services. “This is a game-changer for the industry.”   

All of Lifeliqe’s 3D content has been developed to align with the Medical Education Institutes' (MEI) core curriculum and approved by dialysis field experts. The simulations are based on the cognitive-affective model of immersive learning which has been proven to improve learning outcomes, more efficiently transfer knowledge, and reduce error rates.

“We are excited to be working with Dialysis Education Services because they are experts and innovators in the industry,” said Mark Andersen, co-founder of Lifeliqe. “I believe that Mike and his team are the first independent vocational school to offer this groundbreaking education technology to train their students.”
