Clinical Logic - Challenge

Text
Challenge
To develop on online tutorial which taught students the clinical logic behind the use of range of motion tests to diagnose injuries to muscles, ligaments and nerves.

Clinical Logic - Background

Text
Background
In teaching a basic human anatomy course, Dr Sierra Dawson found that students were struggling to understand the clinical logic underlying injury diagnosis. Part of this challenge was that students could not see the complex interaction of muscles, ligaments and nerves which contributed to injuries; therefore making diagnosis difficult.

Clinical Logic - Solution

Text
Solution
Interactive Media worked closely with Dr Dawson to develop a virtual sports medicine clinic where students could follow an athletic trainer as she applies range of motion tests to diagnose injuries to muscles, ligaments and nerves. Using detailed graphics, interactive animations, audio and quizzing, this self-paced learning object allows students to get an internal view of how these injured tissues react to range of motion tests while practicing the underlying clinical logic with virtual patients.
