Peel Roleplay on Tour – Teaching Session and Feedback Training

In the olden days of the late 1980s, when I began working as a Simulated Patient, we were simply audio-visual aids.  We learned our brief, played our role and then left the room.  The idea that we might have anything else to contribute was never even considered. Times have changed.  Simulation is used in many […]

International Nurses Training at Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital

The COVID 19 Pandemic – Going Online

Almost exactly one year ago, in what feels like another world, we wouldn’t have dreamt that the majority of the Simulated Patient sessions we’d be facilitating would be online. Yet, that’s now the case, and at the 1 year anniversary of ‘Going Online’ it felt like a moment to reflect and look back. Partnerships are tested […]

In Role And Out Of Role

“Would you like feedback in role, or would you prefer it if I come out of role and give feedback that way?” – In teaching sessions at medical schools and in other training environments, sometimes Simulated Patients are asked to give feedback in role: sometimes it’s out of role.  For feedback in role, they play […]
