McGraw-Hill ACTIVSim: Medical Assisting Clinical Simulator is made up of two parts: six Patient Case Clinical Simulators and 17 Clinical Skills Simulators. The Patient Case Clinical Simulators introduce students to non-acute medical assisting patient case scenarios, procedure simulators and quick e-learning exercises.
Six Patient Case Scenarios A large portion of core clinical competencies can be simulated on virtual patients, where the learner can interact with a patient and try out the different tasks that a medical assistant performs in physicians' offices.
The focus of McGraw-Hill ACTIVSim: Medical Assisting Clinical Simulator is on vital signs and obtaining patient data, including a chart feature, so that the learner can collect vital signs and make notes about observations that the medical assistant can brief the doctor about. ACTIVSim provides an excellent opportunity for students to practice their communication and patient interviewing skills prior to their externships and working in a doctor's office.
After each simulation, the learner receives elaborate feedback (debriefing) on their performance. The debriefing includes basic patient assessment issues and recommendations for handling patients who have a particular condition. 15 Clinical Skills Simulators A number of procedures are necessary clinical competencies that a medical assistant needs to master. Some of these are simple step-by-step procedures, while others are more complex procedures requiring different instruments and devices. ACTIVSim Clinical Skills simulators emulate these procedures. The difference between full patient simulators (case scenarios) and skills simulators is that in the latter, you focus on the procedures of the skill, e.g., how to check the blood pressure by following a step by step procedure or how to run an autoclave. The patient case simulators take you through entire patient encounters.
