Patient Case Simulator

Patient Case Simulator

This patient case simulator presents the user with several patients who have dental problems, including sensitive teeth, bleeding gums, discolored tooth, etc.  When one clicks on the given situation, i.e. sensitive teeth, one is presented with a case situation including an introduction, medical history, dental history, and an interview in which one can ask questions and see a short video of the patient answering the question.  The user is able to view all of this information, but cannot save any work.  The cases and interactive tools help students analyze assessment information, develop diagnoses for each case, and write case reports including diagnosis and treatment.
