Dominique Godefroy's curator insight, May 3, 2013 4:01 AM

Young, low-income, minority women respond favorably to a “virtual patient advocate” that talks to them in plain English in a conversational, non-confrontational manner about birth control and other “preconception planning” issues, preliminary testing of the technology shows. Some even prefer the avatar to an actual physician, according to an articlein the American Journal of Health Promotion.

Simulation-Based Assessment and the Regulation of Healthcare Professionals

"Although we still have much to learn about incorporating simulation into regulatory-based assessments, the authors believe that sufficient evidence exists to further advance the use of simulation-based assessments as part of the regulatory systems for healthcare professionals. This position article reviews the current use of simulation-based assessment for credentialing, licensing, and certification programs in medicine, nursing, and dentistry. The findings support the view that simulation-based assessments can make a meaningful and positive difference in credentialing, licensing, and certification programs now."

Nigel Wynne's insight:

OK, So this isn't health related but this is a very interesting project that has applications to any vocational training arena. This project addresses trhe pedagogic considerations required when designing and supporting a group of school pupils. Requires the user to condier how best to engage with "conflicting pupils". The more mistakes the more conflicting pupils:) Congratulations to the project partners for rising to the challenge of a very difficult simulation topic.
