TAME - Training Against Medical Error

The TAME project (Training Against Medical Error) is an EC funded project. It aims to train students against medical error by using Virtual Patients (VPs) in an interactive Problem-Based Learning setting. Institutions from Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Vietnam have transformed their medical curricula to include these VP cases. Partners adapted six Paediatric medical error cases provided by St George’s University of London, into their own language, healthcare and cultural setting. They then created six new cases in their chosen subject area and delivered these to their students. Assessment and evaluation data was gathered and is being analysed. Past studies have shown learning through error is a powerful learning tool.
