PATSy is an established on-line learning resource. It is a web-based generic shell designed to accept data from any discipline that has cases. The domains represented on PATSy currently include developmental reading disorders, neuropsychology, neurology/medical rehabilitation and speech and language pathologies. PATSy contains 61 data-rich and extensively described cases of adults and children with disorders that can be accessed under 4 domain headings - speech and language, dyslexia, medical rehabilitation and neuropsychology. When populated with multimedia test items and data from patients or participants (usually research or clinical cases), PATSy becomes an educational resource for use in conjunction with more traditional methods of clinical training, professional education and academic teaching about disorders. This multimedia database (video, audio, pictures) also serves as an electronic archive for case-based research as it contains rich collections of test data on research participants. The development of PATSy was funded by two consecutive Nuffield Foundation awards. The PATSy system allows students to access virtual patients, including real patient data in the form of videos, assessments, and medical histories. PATSy makes virtual patients available to trainees, educators, clinicians and researchers in various clinical professions and cognate academic disciplines (Cox & Lum, 2004, Lum & Cox, 1998; Lum, Cox, Kilgour, Morris & Tobin, 1999; Cox, Lum & Kilgour, 2001). The virtual patients can have psychometric and cognitive assessment tests `administered' to them by users. PATSy provides a learning environment in which students may practise clinical reasoning in diagnosis. It provides students with opportunities for practise on a wider range of cases than they would typically see in clinical placements, including access to rare (and journal-published) cases. However, unlike live patient contact, PATSy provides an opportunity for unlimited rehearsal and consistent access to the same cases for a whole class of students. Different disciplines (speech & language therapy, neuropsychology, medical rehabilitation) can use PATSy cases inter-professionally. In short, PATSy provides `anytime, anywhere' access to training in an important area of clinical education. PATSy supports several types of use - researchers and clinicians can access the cases and see test data summaries, information about the patient from the case contributor, and access a list of research publications relating to the patient. In contrast, student access can be set up so that students are not presented with test data summaries but are, instead, required to work through and interpret patients' test results at an item-by-item level of granularity. Information about the system, student evaluation reports, walkthroughs, etc can be found on the PATSy website at www.patsy.ac.uk References:***1. Cox, R., & Lum, C.

Looks like a good resource for referring students in the specific areas noted.
Gave option for guest login once inside material, but no explanation of how to login as a guest. Needs additional information to guide participant through login process.

An excellent place to see clinical case studies of virtual patients. Subscription based, only in the UK, and possibly elsewhere too. There are some free "walktrough" demos. Valuable resource for students and researches.
