Simulation Scenario Library

As a free member benefit, ACAPT members can use over 20 peer-reviewed simulation scenarios based on simulation standards of best practice. ACAPT members can: 

Why & when to use scenarios

  • Simulation scenarios designed based on standards of best practice that will help optimize the experience for your learners!
  • Simulation scenarios provide an evidence-based, cost-effective approach to teaching DPT students.
  • Simulation scenarios allow for hands-on learning in a psychologically safe environment where learners can make mistakes and learn from them.

Why submit YOUR scenarios?

  • All submissions are peer-reviewed by individuals with experience in simulation design, providing valuable insight and feedback.
  • Individuals may use peer-reviewed simulation scenarios as demonstration of scholarship or service, depending on your university requirements.
  • Share your scenarios and simulation-based learning experiences with colleagues to build a greater repository of activities for academic physical therapy.
