Curriculum Design & Development

Embedding Simulated Participants/Patients in Your Simulation Practice

Speakers: Prof Debra Nestel 
Date: 25 October 2019 (Fri)  | Time: 1000 - 1130 Location: Academia, Level 1, L1-S3

Simulated Patient (SP) programmes have often been separated from other simulation practices. In this workshop, we will explore fundamental concepts in SP methodology and how SPs may contribute to other simulation-based educational practices. We will also explore other areas of practices from participants that may benefit from SP methodology and develop approaches to getting started in adding this human dimension to simulation-based education and training. Resources will be shared to facilitate participants’ ability to embed SPs in their practices.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Describe fundamental concepts in simulated patient (SP) methodology – definitions, recruitment, role portrayal, feedback etc.
  2. Discuss the scope of practice of SPs focusing on the role of SPs in training for holistic patient-centred care
