Bleeding Barbara

Description: 

Abnormal Uterine Bleeding is a common patient concern seen in primary care. Bleeding Barbara’s virtual case will help clinical clerks and residents to recognize AUB, learn the etiology of AUB in premenopausal women, define various patterns of vaginal bleeding, learn tips on diagnosing and investigating and managing AUB. This case also demonstrates how the use of information systems such as electronic medical records (EMRs) and personal health records will influence how we practice.

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. Below you will find the submission requirements including e-Health topics that must be incorporated in the case design, and the pedagogical and instructional case design criteria.
