Simulated Client Workshop, London, 2.6.17

by Paul Maharg on 02/06/2017

It’s the Simulated Client (SC) workshop today, which I previewed here.  Some great sessions planned, lots of interactivity over lunch, and more thereafter.  We kick off with a plenary from Roger Kneebone, who I met at the National Teaching Fellow dinner back in 2011 purely by chance, and found we shared an enthusiasm for simulation as a learning method.  He’s done great work in medical education, particularly surgery education, and his interdisciplinary work is simply outstanding.  He was a participant at the Papay Convivium (see tab above), and his contribution was superb.

My slides, giving a brief context and history to the idea of simulated clients as opposed to simulated patients, appears at the usual place, on the slide tab.  They also appear, along with others’ slides, at our Simulated Client Initiative blog, recently revived, and now updated with lots of fascinating information about the method, including student feedback and studies of the results that show how powerful the learning method actually is.

I’ll be live blogging the day’s sessions in the following posts where possible.
