The Social Dimension - Patient-Centered Prescribing
QUALITY MATTERS CERTIFIED
Engage Students with Conversation-Based Learning
Digital Clinical Experiences™ provide a safe, standardized environment for students to develop their therapeutic communication and medication prescription skills through realistic interactions with Digital Standardized Patients™. These life-like, simulated patients present with a variety of medical issues and come from a range of social and economic backgrounds. Students must carefully consider these factors during each phase of the simulation as they interview, educate, and prescribe medication to the patient.
Managing the Patient's Care
Three New Activities in Advanced Pharmacology
Advanced Pharmacology introduces three new activities to our lineup of student-centered, interactive learning simulations: medication selection, patient education, and prescription writing. In medication selection, students will consider the patient’s diagnosis, economic situation, preferences, and comorbidities before choosing a medication that offers the best pharmacological therapy for the patient. After selecting the appropriate medication, students educate the patient on the medication they will be taking. Finally, students interpret and apply what they have learned throughout the clinical simulation by filling out a prescription for their patient using Shadow Health’s virtual prescription pad.
Quality Matters Certified
Quality Matters (QM) is an international, US-based non-profit organization specializing in standards, processes, and professional development for quality assurance in online and blended learning. QM tools and resources are regularly revised to reflect current standards and best practices. When you see QM Certification Marks on courses or programs, it means they have met QM Course Design Standards or QM Program Review Criteria in a rigorous review process.
This is my third semester using Shadow Health simulated labs. I have gained valuable knowledge toward interviewing and assessing patients.
Shadow Health is a great tool for allowing us students a safe clinical setting without interruptions to learn and improve our critical thinking and reasoning skills as providers.
I've used this technology in several classes and it is always very helpful and knowledgeable. I'm able to get real-world practice and work full-time.
I wish all my homework assignments could include this! It reinforces that I love what I do and can't wait to implement this into my practice.
