TYPES/DESCRIPTION OF SIMULATION ACTIVITIES

ERROR DISCLOSURE (ALL COLLEGES/PROGRAMS)
Experience/learn error disclosure including fundamental information and communication skills regarding the disclosure of errors, discuss goals for Systems Improvement, Quality Improvement, Patient Safety in regard to error evaluation and disclosure; and apply principles of Patient and Family Centered Care.

ORAL HEALTH (COM, CON, COP, APRN, CHP-PA ONLY)
Work with a standardized patient in interprofessional teams to learn the important of oral health and its links to overall systemic health. Students will be presented with a case and interact with a standardized patient then face the challenge of creating a treatment plan that includes how oral health is impacting the patients situation.

CULINARY MEDICINE (ALL COLLEGES/PROGRAMS)
Nutrition choices can be challenging for people who have difficulty accessing foods that keep them healthy. The reasons for this difficulty may vary. Understanding every individual patient’s context is imperative when facilitating changes in her/his habits and routines. This activity includes getting out of your health professional skin and into the skin/heart/emotions/mind of the patient and professional team members. You will be presented with a case study and them charged to create a nutritious, cost-effective meal using the materials provided.  ***Students must review the study materials PRIOR to the simulation.

POVERTY  (#4) SIMULATION AND (#5) COMPETENCE WORKSHOP
(this event is TWO IPE activities combined!)
Poverty is a reality for many individuals and families. But unless you’ve experienced poverty, it’s difficult to truly understand. This fully immersive simulation bridges that gap from misconception to understanding by creating real world scenarios for students to experience. During the simulation, role-play a month in poverty and experience low-income families’ lives. After the simulation, you will unpack your learning and brainstorm community change.

 

MOCK TRIAL (COM, CON, COP, CHP-PA ONLY)
Experience real court-room drama as you immerse yourself in a medical malpractice trail.  Students will participate as members of interprofessional juries at the Clinton School of Law. A malpractice trial, including attorneys, witnesses, and a judge will unfold in front of you. Student juries will listen to all sides before rendering their verdict of “liable” or “not liable.” This real life scenario is an excellent opportunity for healthcare practitioners to experience first hand.  Participants are limited to COM, CON, COP, COPH, and CHP-PA students only.
