Standardised Tools to Design & Evaluate Clinical Simulation Programmes

Speakers: Prof Charles Docherty, Dr Mehak Rajani and Dr Talha Ahmed Khan
Date: 23 October 2019 (Wed)  | Time: 1500 - 1630 Location: Academia, Level 2, L2-S2


The Centre for Innovation in Medical Education (CIME)Aga Khan University is the first simulation centre of its kind, not only in Pakistan, but also in the region. Initiating a simulation-based learning environment in a developing country is a challenge in itself because it demands a paradigm shift from conventional to liberal teaching pedagogy. And where simulation-based-education is so new, designing a simulation-based workshop/course can be a challenge for clinical faculty. Comprehensive and accurate documentation, as well as the assessment of programmes centred on their learning outcomes serve as important tools to ensure the effectiveness and quality of simulation programmes

This workshop provides insights into how a simulation-based programme is designed from conception, to the documented plan and the evaluation of its implementation. The workshop will also outline Bandura’s theory of self-efficacy and how it can be applied as a framework to construct technically sound evaluations. With reference to CIME's course curriculum templates and standardised evaluation formats, the workshop will demonstrate how these tools can go a long way in enhancing the quality of simulation programmes and their impact on students' learning experiences.


Learning Objectives:
  1. Design a simulation-based education course based on a standard template;
  2. Critically evaluate the scope of the simulation-based activity in order to incorporate established learning outcomes;
  3. Discuss the flow of designing a simulation-based activity/programme in a simulation centre.
