On October 6, 2020, as part of the DeepRaft Project — Doctors Education, Empowerment of Patients, Regarding Atrial Fibrillation and venous Thromboembolism, an online video conference for doctors on the prevention of thromboembolic complications in patients with atrial fibrillation and venous thromboembolism was held. The event took place on the eve of World Thrombosis Day, which is celebrated annually on October 13 and is dedicated to the prevention and treatment of thrombotic disorders.
Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyday life, so it was decided to hold the workshop seminar for doctors online. The experience of distance work was definitely useful for the organizers of this event, namely Professor Serhii Kyselov, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Head of the Department of Internal Diseases No. 1 and Simulation Medicine, as well as Professor Dmytro Lashkul and Ivetta Lykhasenko , Associate Professor of the Department of Propedeutics of Internal Diseases, Radiation Diagnostics and Radiation Therapy. By using the online platform Microsoft Teams, about 30 doctors were involved in the event, including the Heads of two Cardiological Departments. The participants of this international project prepared one case with a virtual patient with atrial fibrillation and one case with a virtual patient with venous thromboembolism. The developed cases were uploaded to the OpenLabyrinth platform and discussed during the seminar in the form of an interactive dialogue. The format of this event aroused great interest among doctors, when each step in the management of a particular patient was analyzed in detail. Scientists have argued about the possibility and consequences of choosing a treatment strategy.
Doctors were satisfied with the opportunity to use a virtual patient technology to develop skills in the diagnosis and treatment of patients at high risk for thromboembolic complications.
