Differences between Basic and Advanced OTC exercise modes
Basic mode is designed to allow instructors to make OTC exercises quickly by providing a broad overview of the patient’s symptoms and how the instructor would treat them. Medications are not directly compared, and the feedback does not change based on student selections.
Advanced mode gives more in-depth feedback options, which change based on which medications that the student chooses to treat the patient. Feedback is set up using ‘treatment groups’ which group equivalent medications together and provide feedback to the student if one of those medications is used to treat the patient. This makes advanced feedback very flexible, but time consuming to set up.
