Project 4

Facilitating interactive diagnostic competences in simulated clinical history taking: The effect of role and various reflection phases 


PhD Candidate

Postdoctoral research associate

Project duration

2017 - 2019

Project description

Project 4 aims to foster clinical reasoning skills in history-taking, an essential interactive diagnostic situation. Three studies will be conducted to investigate the effects of assigned role (doctor, patient, observer) and structured reflection on the clinical reasoning process and the acquisition of clinical reasoning skills.

Current status and planned publications

  • (2018) The simulation and research materials have been developed and evaluated successfully, the validation study will be completed soon. Presently, we are preparing a conceptual article on educational design research with the title “The Research Group Framework of Simulation Research and Development”, a book chapter on simulation development and validation with the title “Facilitating Medical History Taking Through Live and Computer Simulations”.
