Impact of simulation on Physician Assistant Program
Developing a simulation lab
Simulation: “Simulation is a technique—not a technology—to replace or amplify real experiences with guided experiences that evoke or replicate substantial aspects of the real world in a fully interactive manner.” (Gaba, 2004)
Standardized patients (SPs) are specially trained individuals who accurately portray patients for the purpose of educating students.
SP's were first used in the 60’s by Dr. Howard Barrows. (Reed et al. n.d.)
Help create a "near-real-to-life", safe and supportive environment conducive for learning.
Used for the USMLE
Medical Schools 90%, unique in 2 year schools
Where do we get SPs?
How are they trained?
What is the cost?
Simulation is effective in measuring competency (Nehring, et al., 2001).
Requires learners to demonstrate proper technique, decision making, and critical thinking necessary to perform tasks (Gaba, 2004) .
Simulation aids in the acquisition of the "skills needed to provide competent safe patient care" (Gaba, 2004).
Use of simulators improves clinical performance (Steadman, et al., 1999).
APPLICATION OF KNOWLEDGE
VALUE OF FEEDBACK
Continue data collection
Survey Lab Instructors
Has competency improved?
Survey clinical instructors
Are students better prepared?
Has competency improved?
How do students compare to previous students?
How do students compare to those of other institutions?
Determine your goals (What do you want to accomplish?)
Write scenario if required
Determine how much time for each student to complete encounter
Assemble equipment and simulation tools (SPs, props, etc.)
Conduct dry run
