NET2019 - Utilising simulation and real patients in inter-professional education to enhance student empathy for and understanding of older people who have fallen

Join Catherine to hear about how using an elderly person simulation suit and visual impairment glasses can enhance inter-professional education on falls and the development of student empathy for the elderly. For those interested and willing limited vision glasses and the elderly simulation suit will be available for you to gain first-hand experience of some of the struggles faced by the elderly population. Findings from our small-scale study will be discussed alongside the evidence for simulation, and challenges and practicalities of integrating simulation into the curriculum.
