Standardized Patient Simulation

A Standardized Patient or Simulated Participant (SP) is a person who has been trained to portray the roles of patients, family members, or professionals in simulation. Learners can use SPs to practice physical exams, history taking, navigating difficult conversations, teamwork, leadership, communication, safety, and empathy skills before encountering similar situations with real individuals. SPs can also be used as an evaluative or corrective tool when training staff.
