Case Studies

In Case Studies, learners gain a holistic view of a patient's life through narrative footage and flashbacks. These immersive experiences layer flashback and reenactment scenes to enrich understanding of the patient’s condition and emotional state, thereby increasing engagement and promoting cognitive empathy.
