  1. 1. Technology in education, necessary but not sufficient : understanding learning with virtual patients

    Author : Samuel Edelbring; Nabil Zary; Rolf Wahlström; Timothy Dornan; Sweden Stockholm Karolinska Institutet Management and Ethics Informatics Dept of Learning; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : With the rapid technological development and the broadening access to computers over recent decades, several technological innovations have emerged in medical education, including virtual patients. Students’ use of virtual patients is proposed to fill gaps in clinical exposure, and train clinical reasoning. READ MORE

  2. 2. Virtual Reality for Enriched Rehabilitation of Stroke Patients with Spatial Neglect : Diagnostics and the Rehabilitation Effect on Spatial Attention and Neuronal Activity

    Author : Helena Fordell; Jan Malm; Anders Eklund; Hanne Krarup Christensen; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Stroke; spatial neglect; rehabilitation; virtual reality; enriched environment; fMRI;

    Abstract : Background: Approximately a third of all stroke patients develop spatial neglect, a debilitating symptom associated with poor outcome. Spatial neglect is clinically defined as a deficit in processing and responding to stimuli presented on the contralesional side of the body, or the space surrounding that side of the body. READ MORE

  3. 3. Virtual patients for assessment of clinical reasoning

    Author : Elenita Forsberg; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; assessment;

    Abstract : In healthcare education it is essential for the students to develop and achieve clinical reasoning skills. Clinical reasoning is complex to teach and learn, and effective assessment methods are also lacking. READ MORE

  4. 4. Exploring the impact of virtual patient design : medical students' small group learning around medical error

    Author : Luke A. Woodham; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Virtual patients;

    Abstract : Background: The demands on medical and healthcare practitioners are continuously changing, with new technologies, treatments and regulatory guidelines emerging each year. One such example is increased focus on the impact of medical error, which although difficult to measure is generally acknowledged to be responsible for significant numbers of patient harms each year.

  5. 5. Game-based learning for virtual patients in Second Life®

    Author : Maria Toro-Troconis; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Genus och teknik; Gender and Technology;

    Abstract : In the field of medicine, various representative simulations have been developed to support the decreasing number of learning opportunities with real patients; the use of virtual patients is among them. Virtual patients are real-life clinical scenarios used for the purpose of medical education. READ MORE
