Virtual Medicine - A case of hematemesis

Description: 

Electronic Health Record (EHR) is changing the way physicians practice medicine. This is a webcase designed to teach future physicians about using EHRs to complement their history and physical exam to admit a patient with hematemesis. The patient is a 65-year-old female with a complex medical history who does not speak English. As medical students work through the case, they will learn about 1) the use of EHR as a tool to overcome barriers in communication with patients;  2) how EHRs enhance, but are not substitutes for, clinical history and physical exam; 3) an approach and admission for hematemesis; and 4) basic lab test costs and utilization of healthcare resources. Students will answer questions on an online admission form with a time limit to simulate a real-life admission. Assessment and feedback will be provided to the students after completion of their virtual medical experience.

Être guéri, ou ne pas l’être ? Là est la question, docteur !

Description: 

Votre collègue étant partie en congé de maternité, vous devez rencontrer Julie, 30 ans, pour son bilan annuel. Est inscrit à côté de la plage horaire de son rendez-vous : ATCD LH 1997, XRT + anthr (suivi?). Quelle curieuse note s’était laissée votre collègue en vue de ce rendez-vous! En ouvrant son dossier médical électronique, vous apercevez rapidement l’accès à un document numérisé qui vous sera d’un grand secours aujourd’hui : il s’agit d’une lettre provenant de l’hémato-oncologue pédiatre qui a pris soin de Julie. Il contient les principales informations sur les traitements qu’elle a reçus après un diagnostic de lymphome hodgkinien à l’âge de 14 ans. Vous réalisez alors que les patients ayant survécu à un cancer pédiatrique ne sont souvent pas au bout de leurs soucis de santé une fois guéris… Puis vous vous dirigez sans plus tarder vers la salle d’attente : Julie vous y attend!

Tommy Payne

Description: 

 

This virtual patient case is presented as a component of a website intended to
improve medical students' knowledge of interdisciplinary oncology care. The
curriculum for the web site has been developed with an interdisciplinary team
according to Kern’s framework for curricular development. The virtual patient
case builds on the foundations of an accompanying colorectal cancer module
and describes the clinical course of a 73 year old male who presents to the
emergency department with abdominal pain and a change in bowel habits. The
case reviews the presentation, staging and management of colorectal cancer
through interactive discussion and questions. Throughout the case, there is a
significant emphasis on the e-health principle of collaboration and the
inter-professional nature of oncology care. At the end, the learning objectives
for the case are reiterated and the learner is directed to the web module for
further review.

The inflamed and angry

Description: 

 

This virtual patient case, gives the student the opportunity to:
  - Learn about a common rheumatology case and its presentation
  - Perform various actions (like history taking) in making a diagnosis
  - Generate a differential diagnosis
  - Determine the appropriate management 
The case was built on the ‘Virtual Interactive Case’ (VIC) platform.  This has allowed for integration of the EMR, providing an immersive and more clinically realistic experience.  This platform evaluates the student by awarding points when the user performs important pertinent actions.  In addition each action adds time. Therefore the optimal score is attained when the user is efficient and completes all pertinent actions, while avoiding unnecessary ones.
At the end of the case, the student will be able to see how they did in relation to the optimal score/time and will receive feedback about important actions that were selected/missed, the patient's diagnosis and appropriate treatment options.
