Simulated patient program provides students with real life clinical experience
In preparation for their upcoming clinical placement, first year physiotherapy students Emma Presley and Chandler Scott put learning into practice as they assist simulated patient, Kelly Carmody.
The simulated patient program, housed in The Centre for Collaborative Clinical Learning and Research (C3LR), supports the development of patient care skills through simulation-based learning methods. The intent of the program is to help students become familiar working with real (simulated) patients and treatment equipment used in clinical settings. Students are given a case study, in this case a 70-year-old female who had taken a fall, and are expected to demonstrate necessary procedures to enable safe and effective transfer/mobilization.
When not interacting with the simulated patient, students have the opportunity to observe and assess simulated interactions of their peers.They then come together as a group to share what they've learned and areas for self-improvement prior to their first clinical placement.
