Virtual patients designed for training against medical error: exploring the impact of decision-making on learner motivation.

Woodham LA, Round J, Stenfors T, et al. PloS one. 2019;14:e0215597.

Researchers assessed the impact of two different virtual patient models containing error-based scenarios on medical students at six different institutions across three countries. They found that the use of branched decision-making logic did not change students' motivation as compared to a linear virtual patient model without such logic.
