Fever and Fatigue


This "Fever and Fatigue" virtual patient allows you to explore a history of present illness, gather pertinent physical signs and work with a virtual Electronic Medical Record (EMR) as your order and review investigations. You will adjust your sense of possible etiologies as you move through the case, with opportunity to compare your perceptions to those of other students, residents and clinicians.

Participant in the CHEC-CESC Virtual Patient Challenge 2012-2013. 

This Virtual Patient Case was submitted as part of the CHEC-CESC Virtual Patient Challenge 2012 as part of the AFMC-Infoway Physician in Training e-Health Curriculum and e-Learning initiative.

The focus of the challenge is on virtual patients that incorporate the use of electronic health records (EHRs) and other aspects of e-health to improve patient care.

Poppy Gone: Prenatal Care


This case is part of a series being generated for the CFPC SharcFM series.

This particular case deals only with the very early issues in a pregnancy. Follow along with Poppy's pregnancy as she goes through a series of prenatal adventures. While each case will be standalone, there is also benefit to exploring the case series longitudinally to see how her pregnancy unfolds. 

Learning Objectives:

-- Explore some common issues in early prenatal care
-- Develop awareness of costs of common investigations
-- Demonstrate critical thinking around common screening measures
-- Develop awareness of how use of an EMR can improve practice

Target learner groups: primarily late stage medical students, Clerks and early Residents. Clinical faculty may want to use the issues raised in this case to explore some other teaching issues, such as around ethics.

Why not user charges? The real issues


This paper examines the most frequently heard arguments for user fees and looks at the evidence there is for claims and counter-claims that are often made. The paper is intended for a wide general audience and assumes most readers will have heard of the arguments made, but will have little technical knowledge of the issues involved.
