GeriaSims are interactive "virtual patient" simulations on issues encountered in the care of older adults. Each simulation takes approximately 1 hour to complete, depending on your level of content knowledge.
To use GeriaSims, a 256K or faster DSL, cable modem, LAN/Intranet, or other broadband Internet connection; Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher, Netscape 8.0 or higher, Firefox 1.0 or higher, Mozilla 1.7.5 or higher, or Safari 1.3 or higher web browser, with Java script enabled; version 8 or later of the Flash Player; and Adobe Reader 5 or later are required. A sound card and speakers are recommended. GeriaSims are best viewed at a screen resolution of 1024 x 768, but can be viewed at 800 x 600.
To view the learning objectives, click on the simulation title. To begin using a simulation, click the Start Simulation link under the title. After finishing the simulation, please complete a short evaluation. On the last screen, click the "Complete Evaluation" button to fill out the online evaluation form. This only takes a couple of minutes to complete.
