Blacksburgia webisode 30: VCOM Practice Patient

VCOM Practice Patient

Students at VCOM practice diagnosing an elderly volunteer who roleplays that he has Alzheimer’s.  They ask him questions and find out he doesn’t remember who even dropped him off, and they successfully diagnose him.

Only to realize he really is experiencing dementia and does not know where he is or where to go next.
