Session Type: Educational Sessions
Session Level: Intermediate

What is the state of simulation-based education in preparing physical therapist and physical therapist assistant students for the dynamic, fast-paced arena of acute and critical care physical therapy? How can academic faculty and clinicians leverage this technology to maximize its potential? How can we work to reduce the challenges of time, cost, facilities, and faculty development to maximize student benefit from simulation? How can we structure debriefs to enhance the learning experience? Experience lively discussion from an expert panel of acute care physical therapist academic faculty as they debate and challenge our existing evidence base regarding simulation-based education to prepare the next generation of physical therapists. What should be done, who should do it, and when? How can simulated learning activities assist with fulfilment of CAPTE standards and elements? Is it possible to administer an effective and efficient simulation experience for a large student cohort? What metrics exist to determine the effectiveness of simulation? Attendees will be encouraged to engage in small-group discussions and ask probing questions of the panel to propel understanding and integration of simulation beyond current uses and into the future.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

1.Deconstruct current understanding of simulation use in physical therapist and physical therapist assistant education to identify areas of weakness and identify potential for growth.

2. Discuss specific challenges that limit the use of simulation in the preparation for acute and critical care physical therapy practice.

3. Generate ideas for expanding the use of simulation to enhance physical therapist and physical therapist assistant education for better preparation of students.
