Virtual Patient Simulation

This application was developed for our client, MD Anderson Cancer Center, to provide an online continuing medical education offering for general practitioners related to tobacco cessation counseling. Through this work, we helped the client envision the potential of virtual patient interactions and worked with subject matter experts to author an experience that situated practicing physicians within authentic scenarios. We emphasized the need for repeated practice and frequent feedback, created an interface that allowed users to respond to patients at key points, and integrated feedback that was triggered by users' choices and based on MD Anderson's clinical guidelines.
