MEKSI simulations are used in a variety of learning, training and assessment scenarios. The adoption of simulation as a viable learning technique has sparked an evolution both in the teaching of medicine and how trainees and junior doctors develop their essential consultation skills. With the ever-evolving nature of quality patient care, doctors not only have to master knowledge and procedural skills, but also the ability to effectively engage with patients, relatives and other health care providers while coordinating a variety of patient care activities.
MEKSI ensures that students and medical professionals can prepare themselves efficiently against a pre-determined benchmark in a simulated consultation environment before encountering them in real-life scenarios. The simulated consultations provide trainees with the opportunity to learn and re-learn the processes as often as necessary. They are given the opportunity to correct mistakes and refine practices, enabling them to bridge the gap between their theoretical knowledge and practical real world scenarios.
Simulation training with MEKSI assists students in preparing to deal with a variety of cases, thereby increasing their confidence. In clinical or hospital environments, doctors and medical professionals will occasionally find themselves coming across a rare or unusual case. MEKSI doesn’t ignore these types of scenarios, recognising that medical students need realistic exposure to situations like these and will require a best practice approach to patient care in a safe and controlled environment.
The MEKSI simulation tool can aid in the development of skills essential to the doctor-patient consultation process, such as problem-solving and decision-making skills as well as interpersonal and communications skills. A debriefing session which includes constructive feedback that is linked to the learning outcomes must follow any training programme.
MEKSI simulations have been used for the purpose of assessing candidates who undertake the objective structured clinical examination (OSCE). Students and medical professionals looking to prepare with MEKSI have a number of options to choose from.
Meksi Solo is aimed at medical students who want to practise their clinical consultation skills by themselves, without the fear of judgement from their peers.
Whether you prefer to practise with particular cases on your own, or you simply wish to test your skills in a completely non-judgemental environment, Meksi Solo allows you to practise case after case against the computer. The program focuses on content recollection, assisting the way you ask questions and run the consult. With the option of guidance mode, you can set the pace for your learning and customise your level of assistance. You’ll also be able to track your progress and focus on not only the content you have learnt but also the way in which you ask the questions and the framework for the consult.
Whether it helps with your last minute cramming or you’re simply using it during your daily practice session, Meksi Solo will help you retain the knowledge you learn through guided simulation of a real world consultation.
Meksi Solo also helps you track your progress, highlighting areas you might find difficult and helping you reach a higher level of success through instantaneous feedback and comprehensive scoring. It can also be used by institutions to track student progress or simply screen possible applicants.
