Patient Oriented Problem Solving activity (POPS)
This document presents an activity pertaining to geriatrics and ethics. The package has four different books to be distributed to four different students, which will work as a group for a two hour period. The post-tests are scored, but the grades do not enter in the computation of the final grade. Instead, they are used for self-assessment and for identification of students in need of remediation.
This activity was developed by an interdisciplinary team at MUSC and is provided courtesy of Dr. Virella, M.D., Ph.D., Department of Microbiology and Immunology.
