“Building Your SP Program From the Ground Up: Educational, Administrative, and Logistical Issues”
Tony Errichetti, PhD
Director, Doctor-Patient Communication Assessment
National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners
Building a standardized patient (SP) program requires a fair amount of administrative and logistical support, as well as a clear idea of how patient simulations are used as an educational strategy. Often program administrators underestimate the tasks, and the costs, involved in starting and maintaining a program. Indeed, using SPs is more than just role playing, but rather it is a sophisticated approach to teaching and assessing clinical skills.
This webinar will present a brief overview of the following issues:
• How SPs are used to teach and assess skills
• SP recruiting and screening
• Volunteer vs. paid SPs
• Dedicated space and equipment
• SP educators and their role in preparing SPs
• Quality Control and Quality Assurance measures
• Metrics for assessing your SP program’s value
