About neuroscienceCME Medical Simulations:
neuroscienceCME Medical Simulations are dynamic, interactive, patient management scenarios that walk the learner through differential diagnosis, treatment, and management strategies in a variety of clinical areas. These simulations combine video presentations, the latest evidence, and real-world challenges and questions to create a learning environment focused on improving patient care. Each question represents a decision point in the case where the learner, as the clinician, must choose how to proceed based on the available information. Just as in clinical practice, there are often several choices that may lead to an optimal outcome for each patient. When the answer or answers the learner chooses are correct, the rationale and evidence for each one will be displayed. If the learner chooses incorrectly, he or she will be offered a second opportunity to choose the correct answer, and again, the rationale and evidence for each choice will be displayed.
