Wolters Kluwer, Health, a leading global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, has announced a new collaboration with Take the Wind, the company behind the leading digital simulation platform Body Interact, to help expand virtual training tools and resources for medical and physician assistant students. The offering allows students to interact with virtual patients in life-like scenarios, where they are encouraged to assess, order tests, and diagnose in a safe environment.
Advancing the classroom experience through technology
With this partnership, Wolters Kluwer takes the gold-standard of clinical skills training, Bates' Guide to Physical Examination and History Taking, to the next level for medical students, allowing them to practice clinical reasoning within real-world, timed patient scenarios that provide instantaneous feedback. Augmenting the learning from evidence-based Bates’ suite of offerings with simulation allows for higher-order learning and digital transformation for those training to become medical doctors, osteopathic physicians, physician assistants, occupational and physical therapists, and pharmacists. Both products are easily integrated into the curriculum to provide assessable and assignable clinical skills and reasoning solutions that enhance lab experiences to prepare students for real patient encounters.
