What is a Standardized Patient
A Standardized Patient is someone who has been trained to portray (in a consistent/standardized manner) a patient in a medical situation. Standardized Patients (SPs) are used by many medical facilities to teach and evaluate the Student Learners (student doctors/nurses). SPs learn a case based on a real patient other than themselves and are interviewed and/or examined by students as though they were that person in the doctor’s office or clinic, giving the patient’s history and simulating their physical signs such as pain or difficulty walking.
The first rule about Standardized Patients is you cannot talk about Standardized Patients. 😉
My acting scene as Standardized Patient
Unfortunately, I can’t reveal ANY details about the cases due to Privacy concerns/Non-Disclosure Agreements. The Student Learners and their teachers watch the encounters together and are evaluated. I have been working with the Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas, University of Las Vegas and Nevada State College since 2014. We are training the next generation of doctors/nurses. In general, we are assigned a profile of a sick patient. We standardize all the details, so the individual doctor/nurse is graded on his diagnosis and bedside manner. The doctor/nurse interviews us and we respond according to the details we have memorized about the case.
