Standardized Patient Project Planning

Step 1: Should I use an SP(s) in my project? 


Do you need a Standardized Patient or should you use a colleague/actor/model? 

The efficacy of using SPs instead of colleagues/actors/models can be very impactful.  The use of SPs facilitates: critical thinking, crisis management, facilitator-learner discourse, refinement of communication skills, and increase in competency and decrease in apprehensions when working with actual patients. 

Not sure if you need an SP or a colleague/actor/model for your scenario?  Check out the flowchart below to help determine which path would best suit your needs.  Still not sure?  Please contact Beverly Payne, SP Coordinator, at 216-444-5393 for further assistance.
