2020 Workshops


WA Country Health Service (Completed)

10th March 2020, 8:30am - 12:30pm 

Venue: Broome Health Campus, Robinson Street, Broome, WA - Resource Room

Module: S5 - Simulated patient methodology

This module introduces some core facets of simulated patient (SP) methodology. The focus is on preparing SPs to work in healthcare simulations. The module describes a systematic approach to SP methodology. The module addresses issues at the level of the clinical training program (e.g. scenario development, alignment with curriculum, assessment etc) and at the level of the individual SP (e.g. casting, performance training etc). You are encouraged to think creatively about the breadth of content to which SPs can contribute to your own practice and to reflect on current approaches.

Venue: Broome Health Campus, Robinson Street, Broome, WA - Resource Room

Module: S10 – Developing scenarios

Scenarios are a fundamental part of simulation-based education and require careful planning to enable the simulation to meet required learning outcomes. Scenarios can be difficult to develop and may require several iterations to optimally support learning. Factors that enable and constrain scenario development will also be discussed.
