Simulation-based education often provides learners with an opportunity to develop clinical knowledge and skills in context. Through creating scenarios in which learners can immerse themselves, educators can integrate components of clinical practice learnt in isolation, develop practices for teamwork and interprofessional collaborative practice, and connect sequences of patient care. Scenario-based learning can also promote learner engagement with careful design considerations. This may include representation of the voices of multiple stakeholders, including patients and/or their carers.
Through this three-day course, students will review a range of scenario templates, highlighting benefits and limitations, and will design scenarios for creating immersive learning experiences. Students will additionally have the opportunity to apply theory from the foundation unit in health professions education.
