109 Journal Club Monthly Podcast July 2019


This month we discussed “How to include medical students in your healthcare simulation centre workforce” by Viggers et. Al. We have already recorded a wonderful episode with Sandra on this paper that can be found here…. 

Ben and I recap on the paper and the online discussion, as well as the expert opinion from two medical students undertaking their simulation-based education rotation at present. 

We also reviewed 4 extra papers – one focused on reopening simulation facilities in the COVID era:-  

Ingrassia, P.L., Capogna, G., Diaz-Navarro, C. et al.COVID-19 crisis, safe reopening of simulation centres and the new normal: food for thought. Adv Simul5, 13 (2020).  

and three papers with a with a simulated patient methodology theme: - 

Smith CM, Sokoloff LG, Alsaba NCollaborative framework for working with older simulated participants (SP). BMJ Simulation and Technology Enhanced Learning Published Online First: 16 June 2020. ( and this one makes reference to the ASPE Standards of Best practice that can be read here.)
