Evaluation of a digital simulator to train diagnostic skills in Ophthalmology


Direct Ophthalmoscopy is an important tool to detect pathologies e.g. on the optic nerve head. The training of the needed skills is made conventionally in most cases. In such the training sessions students examine each other after dilating one pupil. Examining of patients with pathologies is very important, but in many cases not very easy without any experience.

Simulators are of growing impact to teach diagnostic or surgical skills. A digital simulator with virtual reality technology is used to teach the skills to unexperienced examiners. The head-eye-hand-coordination can be trained without any stress.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A direct form of psychotherapy based on the interpretation of situations (cognitive structure of experiences) that determine how an individual feels and behaves. It is based on the premise that cognition, the process of acquiring knowledge and forming beliefs, is a primary determinant of mood and behavior. The therapy uses behavioral and verbal techniques to identify and correct negative thinking that is at the root of the aberrant behavior.
