In my own words
Each patient case in our newest collection includes a realistic and compelling audio interview, so your students can get a true-to-life experience of working with the patient.
Have your students listen to the audio, conduct a thorough review of the patient’s entire Electronic Health Record (EHR) on the Go platform, then create a comprehensive plan of care.
Students will build their understanding and find the information they need to care for, diagnose, and treat, while learning important documentation skills.
Go’s diverse and realistic patient cases bring the power of story to healthcare education and reinforce human-centered use of technology. Built to be as multifaceted as the individuals they represent, the stories of our patients introduce vital healthcare concepts, lessons, and terminology in ways your students will connect with.
