Abstract

Alcohol use disorders are common, but are often not discussed with patients. Through NIAAA funding, SIMmersion LLC and the University of Wisconsin are producing an interactive, immersive computer-based simulation that will allow learners to conduct an alcohol screening and brief intervention with a virtual standardized patient. The validity of this simulation will be evaluated through a study involving 100 clinicians.
