This unique European course for SP educators covers how to use Simulated and Standardized Patients in your curriculum for training, assessment and research with SPs. This course is developed in collaboration with ASPE (Association of Simulated and Standardized Patient Educators). Course leaders are the current international leaders in the field of SP methodology and maintain leading executive board positions of ASPE. Earlier successful courses with the same staff have been given at several Asian Pacific Medical Education Conferences in Singapore.
The aim (in line with the mission of ASPE) is to support the development and advancement of Simulated/Standardized Patient (SP) education and research in the health sciences. The course also aims to foster national and international, foremost European, collaboration. Taking part in the course will bring your level of expertise in the domain of SPs up-to-date for 2020.
The emphasis of the course is on active learning-by-doing. Course methods will include a mixture of demonstration of techniques, short mini lectures, ‘doing-it-yourself’ followed by discussion and feedback, and small-group work. Participants will be asked to bring along their own SP cases that will be utilised during the conference. Throughout the three days, participants will experience interactive learning. The course will provide a platform for the exchange of international experiences with ample opportunities to bring in local/national problems. You can meet, work and network with other international SP educators and visit the FHML skills lab, which was the first skills lab in the world and is still unique.
The course level will focus on SP educators or those who consider themselves to be SP educators who already have some experience in working with simulated/standardized patients. The course specifically (but not only) aims to attract a variety of SP educators from a number of European countries. By doing so, the course hopes to foster national and international, foremost European, collaboration. To compose this group for international collaboration, subscription to the course will be by application only.
The course will cover the theory behind simulation and simulated/standardized patient methodology, in particular:
