medical educationAs demands on healthcare providers increase, compassion becomes more difficult to sustain. But new training promises to help healthcare providers meet those challenges. Drexel University College of Medicine is developing an online medical education program called WebPatientEncounter.com to help healthcare professionals learn practices and assess complex clinical skillsfor example bad news delivery, smoking cessation counseling, or organ donation counseling, using simulated interactions with patients and their families.

Besides assisting physicians and other healthcare professionals with structured feedback on performance as well as video examples of best practices, the program is also designed to help hospitals boost patient satisfaction scores, which impacts Medicare reimbursement.
