Simulation experience / simulation research:
I have been using VERT since 2008 with activities covering pre-clinical preparation, including fundamental principles of radiotherapy and workflows, skin apposition techniques and image review and approval.
I also have experience of using VERT as a platform for both summative and formative assessment.
