Computer simulation could become 'integral' in the diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of disease by the end of the century
The Independent
A patient is rushed to hospital after suffering a severe stroke. Immediate action is needed to return blood to the affected part of their brain; without this they may suffer brain damage or die. Poised to begin surgery, doctors are warned by real-time computer simulations that show how the blood is flowing around the patient's brain that the consequences of their actions could be dire. Equipped with this information, they change course, and the patient survives.

Teaching geriatric care to a new generation
The Inquirer
George Palo is 90. He's repeating himself quite a bit these days and he's just had to downsize to a retirement community. He really misses his late wife. Soon, he will also miss his beloved dog, Max. This last bit of news caused a roomful of nurse educators to moan a sad, sympathetic, "Ohhhh" at a meeting last week at the Independence Blue Cross building in Center City, Pennsylvania. George is a fictional character, created along with two others to help nurses in training understand dementia and its traveling companions among the elderly: depression and delirium.
