Abstract

In complex design contexts, which require horizontal management of vertical knowledge, design is taking on roles increasingly distant from those that originally distinguished it. Strategic visions and methodologies conceive the figure of the designer as a mediator between actors and knowledge with highly different background and great intercommunication and design difficulties; and as a catalyst for the processes around innovation. This paper was born from first research, contextualized to the present, which focused on the development of guidelines for the creation of tools and environments, in order to improve the simulation techniques used to provide training to medical professionals and students, that act in contexts of urgency and emergency. Having defined the design direction to follow in the aforementioned research, it is necessary to go for a visioning operation projecting the medical simulation in the near future (2030), where the scientific and technological progress allows to hypothesize a remarkable innovation in the system already proposed. This process is fundamental in order to anticipate and propose innovative ways to use innovative technologies. This research is developed by an open-source and cooperative network composed of SIMNOVA, a medical simulation center based in Novara, LogosNet, a company that works in the field of virtual reality and the Design Department of the Politecnico di Milano with its project and management skills, with the aim of creating tools and guidelines for a new model of medical education.
