Towards an “Operational” Educational Model in Healthcare: Exploiting Computer-Interpretable Guidelines

Abstract

Clinical guidelines (GLs) encode the best medical practices. GLs have been widely exploited to enhance the quality of patient care, and to optimize it, and several computer-based approaches to manage computer-interpretable guidelines (CIGs) have been proposed in the literature. Quite surprisingly, however, the potentialities of CIG systems in medical education have not been considered yet. In this position paper we argue that, since CIG systems support the “simulation” of the application of GLs on specific patients, they can be used to show students how to apply medical knowledge and best practices on specific patients. Therefore, using CIG systems, students may learn an “operational methodology” that, otherwise, they could only learn from the medical practice. In this paper, we have taken GLARE (and its extension, META-GLARE) as an example of CIG system, and we have addressed the roadmap we intend to follow to fully exploit its potentialities in medical education.
