We develop trainings using innovative learning methods.

Innovative Learning

Innovative teaching methodologies such as simulation, virtual reality and game-based techniques are becoming increasingly popular for disaster preparedness and response training. We design different creative ways to enhance outcomes of learning in disaster preparedness and response.

 

Virtual Reality (VR) simulation is one of the methodologies we are using to enhance learning impact. We use VR simulation to advance practice and sustain learning outcomes of disaster training. VR simulation seems to have bridged the gap between paper-based and field-based training, which have been commonly utilised for disaster training. Some other advantages of VR simulation include enhancing immersive virtual environments, facilitating instant feedback on performance, allowing participants to learn at their own pace, and providing unlimited number of virtual scenarios, etc. Our VR tools include a laptop animation-based interactive software and the use of an immersive projection system.   

 

Apart from VR simulation, we use different tools to promote blended learning which is a mixture of learning methods that incorporate multiple teaching modalities to engage learners and drive their learning experience.

The Chinese Government marked 12 May as the National Disaster and Risk Reduction Day since the devastating earthquake struck the Sichuan province of China on 12 May 2008. A series of community campaign and activities were supported by the Chinese Government, community groups and private organisations on the National Disaster and Risk Reduction Day every year.   The Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Institute (HKJCDPRI) has always valued community disaster preparedness efforts. On the National Disaster and Risk Reduction Day 2017, the HKJCDPRI participated in the community campaign in Shenzhen city as invited by the Shenzhen Emergency Governance Society.

The 20th World Association for Disaster and Emergency Medicine (WADEM) Congress was convened on 24–28 April 2017 in Toronto, with more than 900 disaster and emergency medicine professionals in attendance. The Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Institute (HKJCDPRI) submitted two abstracts on two trainings which incorporated virtual reality (VR) simulation elements that HKJCDPRI co-organised with the the Hong Kong College of Anaesthesiologists and Hong Kong Automobile Association respectively.

Targeted for aircrew officers, air medical officers and air medical nursing officers, the first Air Crew Resuscitation Course was completed on 3 December 2016 with six participants. The course provided foundation knowledge and hands-on experience of pre-hospital and helicopter resuscitation in a simulated environment.  The Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Institute (HKJCDPRI) supported the Hong Kong College of Anaesthesiologists and Government Flying Service (GSF) for better training effect by developing 360-degree virtual reality films and a helicopter cockpit mock-up.
01/10/2016
Partnering with the Hong Kong Automotive Association, HKJCDPRI organised a training "Motorsport Medicine Incident Management Course" for medical incident first responders, involved in the 2016 FIA Formula E Hong Kong Station race event held on 8 and 9 October 2016. Two identical courses were held on 24 September and 1 October 2016 with a participation of 80 medical emergency first responders.
