A message from Clymer.."CC"..Conrad Clyburn to all members of Medical Modeling & Simulation on MedTechIQ!
As reported in Science/Business...The University of Keele (United Kingdom) is looking to license a proprietary IT system developed by researchers there that generates computer characters, such as virtual patients and doctors, which pharmacists in training can interact with to improve their communication and decision-making skills. The technology is currently geared towards simulations of conditions such as dyspepsia and hypertension, but can also be tailored for training in a variety of areas, according to university official Luke Bracegirdle. The system has already been licensed non-exclusively by Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, for use in its undergraduate pharmacy program.
