Project Livermore: 3D Simulation of Human Anatomy and Patient Education on Medical Conditions
MetadataShow full item record
Project Livermore is a development project intended to address the issue of providing patients with timely and engaging personalized educational materials consistent with a diagnosis they may have received. This paper is intended to demonstrate a proof-of-concept tool to facilitate the dissemination of educational materials by way of a standards-based inter-operable tool whereby a patient is able to observe and manipulate a 3D model based on their diagnosis, observe disease progression, and read supporting literature. The tool is designed around a problem-based learning pedagogy that uses simulation-based learning to promote understanding.
