Overview
  • eViP is creating a bank of repurposed and
    enriched multicultural VPs from across Europe
  • Need to understand the current use of VPs
  • Need to determine future acceptance of eViP
    product to identify the marketplace
  • Conducted an international survey to gather
    evidence

Survey methodology
  • Paper-based survey
  • AMEE 08 Prague
  • Online via SurveyMonkey
  • Awareness via
  • MedEdPortal
  • MedBiquitous VP working group

    email lists
  • Results pooled and analysed

    educational settings, use in assessment etc

6
Are VPs used somewhere in your curriculum?
7
Which educational scenarios use VPs?
8
Educational level where VPs are used
9
Where do your VPs come from?
10
Have you conducted any evaluation of VPs?
11
Will you use VPs in the future?
12
Yes
  • modern way to enrich curriculum
  • more students with less training time
  • an important way of standardization
  • there aren't many 'real' patients available for
    every student
  • VPs are needed to ensure uniform exposure to
    patients across teaching sites and throughout the
    year

13
No
  • Patient actors suffice and I believe are more
    spontaneous
  • I don't consider it promotes learning
  • It's not realistic enough

14
What educational approaches best suit VPs?
15
What curriculum areas are best suited to VPs?
16
Would be be willing to share your VPs?
17
Main perceived barrier excluding time?
18
On what cost basis should VPs be available?
19
How much should VPs cost (in Euros)?
20
Take home messages
  • VPs are being used currently but more so in the
    future
  • Independent learning PBL are perceived as most
    relevant educational scenarios
  • All curriculum areas are suitable for a VP
    approach
  • More evaluation of VP approach is needed
  • Cost is most important factor
  • but institutions should pay
  • People are willing to share VPs
