Sharing the history and methodology of ASPE and the SP at IMSH
from By Karen Lewis, U of Georgetown
In 2013, the Association of Standardized/Simulated patient Educators celebrated the 50th anniversary of the first publication about the simulated patient. Many 2014 IMSH attendees may remember the portion of the Stephen Abrahamsom video describing his work with Howard Barrows, the creator of the simulated patient. While teaching medical students, Dr. Barrows, a neurologist, discovered that a lay person could be trained to simulate illness and give feedback to medical students about their history taking and communication skills.
