Virtual patients, serious and serious games represent learning objects that are increasingly used in the lifelong education of doctors and other health professionals. The Leukemik.cz project presents a series of virtual patients - interactive case studies that allow you to go through diagnostic and therapeutic procedures for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and acute lymphoblastic leukemia with a positive Philadelphia chromosome (Ph+ ALL). Although the greatest application is expected mainly among hemato-oncologists, this educational IT platform can become an interesting source of information for specialists in other medical fields as well.
start of the project: January 2021
The Leukemik.cz project uses four main pillars of learning identified by cognitive science in its virtual patients: attention, active learning, feedback and consolidation. An important aspect is also the fact that when creating content and describing individual situations, the authors take care to refer to professional literature and recommended clinical procedures - guidelines. The project thus enables an interactive form of learning that appropriately complements classic forms of postgraduate education for doctors, especially hemato-oncologists.
