Delivering Bad News Simulation 


Difficult situations, and difficult conversations, require certain patient/family-centered communication techniques.  This simulation will allow learners a chance to practice team communication skills while exploring scenarios unique to delivery bad news following a health crisis. 

Proposed goal: the goal of this project is to help students engage in difficult conversations with patients in a team setting to prepare health professions students to be collaborative and patient-centered when delivering team-based care to the community.

Intended Project Outcomes:

  1. Increase in the number of health profession learners working in teams to deliver difficult news to clients/patients in a patient-centered manner.
  2. Prepare learners to engage in difficult conversations with clients/patients.
