Learn By Doing:

CE: Eddie Duran is an educational game for medical and other health professionals and students that uses a simulated medical record to teach how to help a patient quit vaping. 

The game involves a simulated medical appointment with Eddie Duran, a 16 year old patient who vapes nicotine. You will take the role of a healthcare professional , make clinical choices, and experience outcomes based on the choices you make. You will be challenged to:

  • Assess the extent of Eddie's vaping habit. Is he addicted to nicotine?
  • Provide brief interventions to motivate him to quit.
  • Help him develop a plan to quit successfully.
  • Provide Eddie and his parent with educational materials.

You will complete typical steps of a patient encounter and receive feedback after each step: 

  • Review case history 
  • Complete an evaluation and brief intervention 
  • Make a plan of care for your patient
