The representation of time in clinical patient simulations

Proc Annu Symp Comput Appl Med Care. 1994;1009.


Simulated clinical scenarios are generally compressed in time to enhance educational effectiveness and to minimize testing time. Designers should consider how to best control potential sources of distortion in the perception of time and how to best communicate the passage of time to the user.
