Kinkade (Academic Medicine, 80, 300-301, 2005) recently reported that 70% of U.S. medical schools use problem based learning (PBL) in their preclinical curriculum. A study investigating the impact of adding video to PBL cases for residents found that the videos added improvement in data exploration, theory building and in theory evaluation (Baslev, DeGrave, Muijtjens, & Scherpbier, Medical Education, 39, 1086-1092, 2005). This resource contains four video PBL cases and accompanying scripts. These cases address the following clinical issues: 1. Abuse of a child 2. Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) 3. Diabetes 4. Alzheimer's disease Additionally, there are multiple psychosocial issues addressed in each including confidentiality, patient-physician communication, access to care, and several others. Also included in the resource are 3 corresponding facilitator guides.
The learner will be able to:
Enhance problem based learning (PBL) by providing live patient cases.
Focus on psychosocial issues in addition to clinical disorders.
Highlight physician-patient communication.
