Pathophysiology to Presentation: Translating Evidence to Improved Care of Patients with Fibromyalgia
Indiana University School of Medicine Division of Continuing Medical Education and CME Outfitters, LLC will collaborate on the development and implementation of an educational medical simulation on diagnoses and treatment of fibromyalgia. Primary care physicians and psychiatrists will be the primary target audiences for this initiative, entitled Optimizing Outcomes for Patients with Fibromyalgia.
The project will use case vignettes because of their value in predicting physician practice patterns. These case vignettes will be published as interactive, video-based, online patient simulations that offer clinicians an opportunity to match their diagnostic and clinical skills with the faculty author of the case study. The video-based interactive format provides an avenue for the clinician to become the decision maker in a real-world diagnostic and clinical management challenge.
The objectives of this interactive tool include 1) the provision of a standardized clinical experience, 2) the promotion of independent learning, and 3) the further development of clinicians problems solving skills. The ultimate goal is to improve physicians performance in the diagnosis and management of patients with fibromyalgia by utilizing multiple decision points in real-world patient cases.
