Health Professions Education as Theatre: the Many Faces and Roles of Standardized Patients

9:00am-10:00am & 2:00pm-3:00pm, CL 215-216

Bernie Miller, Standardized Patient Program Director, Kanbar Center
Anne Homan, Standardized Patient Trainer, Kanbar Center

This session will explore how standardized patients (SPs) can enhance the learning experience for all health professions. Through video and live demonstration, we will review existing applications and will explore how standardized patients, aside from playing the part of a patient, can be used to serve in a variety of different roles. In addition we will discuss how standardized patients can give effective and valuable feedback to learners after an encounter, and brainstorm about methods that participants can use in the development of their programs.
At the end of the session, participants will be able to:
•    List the various uses of standardized patients in health profession education;
•    Describe potential applications for their own setting;
•    Access resources to start developing case materials and scenarios.

Conducting Mannequin-Based Simulations

10:00am-11:00am & 3:00pm-4:00pm, Large Kanbar Simulation Room

Wes Cayabayab, Kanbar Simulation Technician, Kanbar Center
Sandrijn van Schaik, Associate Professor of Clinical Education, Pediatrics

In this short, interactive workshop,participants will gain insights into the logistics of conducting a mannequin-based simulation. We will review the concept of fidelity, or how a scenario can be made realistic, based on equipment, environment and psychological fidelity. Participants will learn how to optimize fidelity, the pros and cons of the use of confederates and various approaches to the instructor role will be reviewed. We will discuss common challenges and practice how to deal with unexpected developments.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
•    Explain the concept of fidelity and its different components;
•    Create an effective learning experience by enhancing fidelity;
•    Recognize common pitfalls in conducting simulation sessions and know how to prepare for them.

Getting the most out of your simulations using AV-capture, Smart Boards and iPads

11:00am-12:00pm & 4:00pm-5:00pm, Large Kanbar Simulation Room

Wes Cayabayab, Kanbar Simulation Technician, Kanbar Center
Rich Fung, Kanbar Simulation Technician, Kanbar Center

The Kanbar Center not only has state-of-the-art simulation mannequins, but a variety of other technologies that can enhance debriefing and evaluation of simulation sessions. In this workshop, we will demonstrate these technologies and participants will get hands on experience with the use of electronic whiteboards (known as smart boards) and direct video playback during debriefing. We will review how iPads can integrated into a simulation session for assessment and evaluation, and how video capture through our B-Line Medical tool can be utilized for later review and reflection. 
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
•    Debrief a simulation with direct video playback;
•    Effectively use a smart board during debriefing;
•    Use iPads for assessment and evaluation.

It is also an opportunity to give feedback and participate in future planning and programs.
By the end of the session, participants will:
•    Understand the timeline for improvements to existing classrooms, the fate of classrooms in buildings undergoing renovations, and plans for new classrooms coming online at Mission Bay.
•    Understand the standard technologies and configurations they can expect in classrooms in the future.
•    Learn how to provide feedback and participate in planning.
•    Discover ways to monitor progress on current renovations.

Presenting with an iPad 

3:00pm-4:00pm, CL 221-222

Xinxin Huang, Education Technologist, School of Nursing

The workshop will cover how to prepare the iPad for presenting and the required hardware for use in a classroom situation. Presentation applications on the iPad such as Keynote and Prezi will also be covered.  We will highlight some tips and tricks for using presentation tools. Bring your iPad and find out how to get started!

By the end of the session, participants will be able to use an iPad for professional and course presentations as an alternative to a laptop computer.

Copyright: Images, Open Content, and Fair Use

4:00pm-5:00pm, CL 220-223
