We had a great response to the webinar (Apr 4) "Hybrid Simulation Scenarios: Mixing Standardized Patients with Simulation Technology" by Benny Holland, Texas A&M Health Science Center.
Abstract: Standardized Patients provide a level of realism impossible with manikins alone. Partial task trainers and manikins provide students with the ability to perform invasive procedures such as IV insertion and medication administration to which SPs cannot be subjected. When combined, students enjoy realistic human interaction and communication while practicing invasive skills in a single simulation. Informal surveys reveal that these hybrid simulations are preferred by both faculty and students over using either SPs or manikins alone, and they are the standard of practice at the Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Nursing.
