This presentation explores the third prototype design iteration of an immersive reality (XR) enhanced simulation project in critical healthcare higher education. Built upon three project iterations 2017-2019, the design-based research (DBR) project illustrates that XR can be employed within the learning environment to introduce critical elements of patient and practitioner risk and stress through simulated environmental and socio-cultural influences without putting either students, educators, practitioners or patients at real risk, but create a safe learning environment that more authentically simulates these risk elements, enhancing traditional mannequin based simulation experiences.
