Virtual story telling: interactive patient case studies

Creating awareness about a rare disease or increasing treatment awareness in your target physicians can be a difficult task. Using a training method preferred by doctors will improve your chances of capturing their attention.

We recommend interactive patient cases. They are the ideal medium to educate and train doctors in complex treatments scenarios, specific patient types, commorbidities or the management of complications. This story-driven approach makes it easier to understand and guide the learners’ focus on specific elements. Learners will be placed in a virtual hospital atmosphere. The scenario allows them to access data and patient information in a structured manner, whether it is sorted by department or chronologically. The latter, step-wise approach provides an overview of patient development over time and the impact of certain treatments. Expert comments help learners to understand certain treatment changes which are always referenced back to the guidelines for the respective indication. A connection with quiz elements allows you to certify learners, and even CME accreditation is possible. This interactive presentation style also works in group settings and can potentially enhance a satellite symposium, whether these are live or virtual. The interactivity will dwarf the classic PowerPoint presentation style and give your meeting a unique character. With the support of societies you are able to increase your reach quickly and connect with physicians globally. infill is an official partner of many societies around the world. We are happy to support and connect you.
