One sentence Presentation Summary: The ASPE GTA/MUTA SOBP will be presented and case studies will be used to facilitate application of the SOBP.
Background: In 2017, the Association of Standardized Patient Educators (ASPE) published the ASPE Standards of Best Practice (Lewis et al., 2017). The ASPE SOBP is arranged in five Domains representing Safe Work Environment, Case Development, Training SPs, Program Management, and Professional Development. Each Domain incorporates a series of related Practices and Principles, which are all aspiration in nature. The underlying values of safety, professionalism, quality, accountability, and collaboration inform the entire document. The ASPE SOBP primarily addresses the needs of Standardized Patient Educators (SPEs) engaging in SP simulation for formative and summative assessment of learners. Lewis et al. (2017) reported that future versions of the SOBP would address the needs of unique applications of SP-methodology, such as those represented by Gynecological Teaching Associate (GTA) and Male Urogenital Teaching Associate (MUTA) programs.
International GTA/MUTA methodology experts were recruited to partake in the Delphi process, which is a series of rigorous, iterative surveys with the goal of identifying consensus (Hopkins, Weaks, Webster, Elcin, in review). Methodology experts were required to have at least three years of experience within a GTA/MUTA program as a GTA/MUTA, GTA/MUTA educator/trainer, and/or program administrator. The survey utilized the ASPE SOBP (Lewis et al., 2017) as a foundation to modify existing and create new GTA/MUTA-specific Practices. Changes in language were necessary (eg., SP to GTA/MUTA; simulation, case, role portrayal to instructional session). Sharing the same values as the ASPE SOBP, the ASPE GTA/MUTA SOBP is an aspirational document that programs can use to facilitate evaluation and growth. Prescriptive Practices are avoided, acknowledging that each program exists within a unique context. Numbering from the ASPE SOBP was retained to facilitate document comparison as programs that are utilizing GTAs/MUTAs in simulation and/or summative experiences will find relevant Practices in each document.
This session is designed to present and explore the ASPE GTA/MUTA SOBP using case studies, small group discussions, and large group debriefing.
Three Anticipated Learning Outcomes: Participants will be able to:
- Discuss how the ASPE GTA/MUTA SOBP can be used to facilitate safe work environments, instructional session development, GTA/MUTA training, and program management.
- Implement Practices from the ASPE GTA/MUTA SOBP using a case study format and small group discussion.
- Reflect on how the ASPE GTA/MUTA SOBP can be utilized to facilitate growth of your GTA/MUTA program
