Near Me is used to enable health and care students across a variety of academic institutions to achieve their learning outcomes. Students use Near Me to join clinicians seeing patients during in person consultations to take part in "authentic conversations". Students also interact with "volunteer" patients during consultation scenarios using Near Me. Practice based learning opportunities are also undertaken during the "remote" elements of a student placement.
