EWMA 2020: In Vitro Veritas? A Discussion on Biofilm Testing


In this session, we will explore ‘The impact of mental models in medical sciences using biofilms in wounds as an example.’  We will discuss the presence of mental models about biofilm and explore whether an in vitro experience of biofilm among researchers and health care providers might have generated a shared mental model that has led to further assumptions related to in vivo contexts. We will discuss the implications and consequences of this mental model based on a psychological and research-based approach.
