Often times, faculty are tasked with filling out checklists documenting student performance in simulations. Other times, faculty may want SPs to fill out a checklist, but one that was designed to be completed by a faculty member and not tailored to the SP perspective. In this session, participants will be introduced to the concepts that help create a checklist for use by Standardized Patients, as well as discuss some of the ways to broach the topic of SPs completing checklists with faculty. They will see an example of a checklist used by faculty become adapted for use by Standardized Patients. Participants will be given a second checklist that might normally be completed by faculty. They will work in small groups to adapt it for Standardized Patients. The entire group of participants will then discuss what the small groups created. The session will end with questions and answers.
As SP Educators, we are sometimes given lists of things that faculty want learners to consider while performing a history and physical. Because many Standardized Patients do not have a medical background, it can be difficult to expect them to use a faculty designed checklist. By creating checklists that SPs can accurately score, we can expand SPs’ responsibilities while alleviating faculty time.
Participants will: -Distinguish the difference between faculty centered checklist items and SP observable, behavior-based checklist items -Translate desired learner thought processes into observable learner behaviors -Build a checklist that can be accurately scored by a Standardized Patient
