"JUST-in-time health emergency interventions - Training of non-professionals by Virtual Reality and advanced IT tools"
Period: January 2000 - May 2003
Type: European Research
The JUST project addresses the domain of training of non-professional health emergency operators. It aims, through the use of advanced information technologies, certified content, and innovative VR based tools, to provide advanced support for continuous education and training, and to overcome the present weaknesses.
The specific objectives of JUST are:
(1” development of a Web/CD training course to support the traditional learning phase, based on the collection and/or creation of multimedia content of European relevance
(2” development of a Virtual Reality Verification Tool to check operators capabilities to:
- adopt correct decision-making procedures - make optimal use of new technological equipment
- overcome psychological barriers.
(3”design and development of advanced, adaptive user interfaces for both the interactive course and verification tool. There is urgent need to develop new methodological frameworks to help professionals and the citizen to access information in multiple and functionally adaptive ways.
