Simulation in Physical Therapy Education Consortium

Simulation in Physical Therapy Education Consortium (SIPTEC)


Simulation in Physical Therapy Education Consortium (SIPTEC)

SIPTEC represents ACAPT institutional members with a strong interest in simulation as a pedagogical approach to the education and professional development of physical therapist students, residents/fellows and clinical educators.

 

Simulation-based education builds a bridge from classroom learning to clinical practice, and fosters the integration of knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for clinical practice.

 

SIPTEC's purpose is to promote best practices in the use of simulation-based learning, which may involve various modalities and settings including:

  • paper-based,
  • computer-based,
  • human actor-based (simulated or standardized patient), or
  • manikin-based platforms.

Objectives:

  • Provide a forum for physical therapy education programs to share resources for development of simulation-based learning experiences.
  • Promote best practices for uses of simulation as a teaching and learning experience and explore methods of formative and summative assessment, preparation for clinical education experiences, and ongoing physical therapist professional development.
  • Assist members with advocacy strategies to create and sustain a successful PT simulation program and communicate necessity to their stakeholders.

     

    • Provide opportunities and grant funding to collaborate on research endeavors to determine best practices for implementation and evaluation of outcomes of simulation-based learning experiences in physical therapy education.
    • Create a conduit for academic and clinical educators to partner to improve student preparation to provide safe, effective and collaborative patient care.
    • Expand the use of simulation-based learning to promote interprofessional education.

    ACAPT's Simulation in Physical Therapy Education Consortium (SIPTEC) was formed in July 2020.  More information will be posted when the consortium has established members and officers.

    SIPTEC will collaborate with and be complimentary to other ACAPT consortia, including the Clinical Reasoning Curricula & Assessment Consortium (CRCAC), the National Interprofessional Education Consortium (NIPEC) and the Education and Pedagogy Consortium.
