This work includes a Foreword by Jonathan Silverman, Associate
Clinical Dean and Director of Communication Studies, School of
Clinical Medicine, University of Cambridge. Emphasis is placed on
shared decision making, appraisal, and dealing with difficult
situations as well as the more common topics such as taking a
history and breaking bad news. Healthcare educators with an
interest in communication skills training and personal and
professional development will find this guide invaluable, as will
undergraduate and postgraduate teachers in university and workplace
settings. "As its central component, this manual of experiential
learning provides a bank of ready-made simulated patient scenarios
that will prove invaluable to anybody setting up a programme from
scratch - here is a collection of scenarios with information for
facilitators, participants and simulated patients and hints on how
to run sessions on specific topics and it is clearly not just for
beginners - those already running established programs will also
find it so useful to be able to turn to a resource of simulated
patient scenarios when planning a new session." "Now educators can
turn to a practical source of expert guidance in setting up
sessions utilising simulated patients. Experiential work with
simulated patients is the most effective way of improving learners'
communication skills. Practical, thoughtful and well considered
help such as this new book is worth its weight in gold and will
help so many educators as they strive to introduce this approach to
learning into medical curricula and assessments." - Jonathan
Silverman, in the Foreword.
