Author information

SIMmersion LLC, Columbia, MD, USA.


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.
