This month we discussed “How to include medical students in your healthcare simulation centre workforce” by Viggers et. Al. We have already recorded a wonderful episode with Sandra on this paper that can be found here….
Ben and I recap on the paper and the online discussion, as well as the expert opinion from two medical students undertaking their simulation-based education rotation at present.
We also reviewed 4 extra papers – one focused on reopening simulation facilities in the COVID era:-
Ingrassia, P.L., Capogna, G., Diaz-Navarro, C. et al. COVID-19 crisis, safe reopening of simulation centres and the new normal: food for thought. Adv Simul 5, 13 (2020).
and three papers with a with a simulated patient methodology theme: -
Smith CM, Sokoloff LG, Alsaba N. Collaborative framework for working with older simulated participants (SP). BMJ Simulation and Technology Enhanced Learning Published Online First: 16 June 2020. ( and this one makes reference to the ASPE Standards of Best practice that can be read here.)

Participant Perspectives on the Contributions of Physical, Psychological, and Sociological Fidelity to Learning in Interprofessional Mental Health Simulation, Simulation in Healthcare: The Journal of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare: June 2020 - Volume 15 - Issue 3 - p 141-146
And finally – Ben gave us a heads up for the August Journal Club.
Leung, J.S., Brar, M., Eltorki, M. et al. Development of an in situ simulation-based continuing professional development curriculum in pediatric emergency medicine. Adv Simul 5, 12 (2020).
