We need to clarify what is meant by this set of activities. How is this different from Scenarios, Standardized Patients etc? Do we need another Profile for when a Preceptor is involved? Or am I misinterpreting the intent of this suggested Profile?
Hi, David. Maybe part of the question is how are we defining preceptor. I've seen Standardized Patient activities where the only involved persons are the student and the standardized patient (thinking about some of Christof Daetwyler's work on web-based SP interactions where there is no instructor observing). Or maybe I am being too academic. When I think about the function of a preceptor, I think about observation, so maybe the verbs would be the same no matter who was observing (SP or what we would normally think of as a preceptor). I think the key is that we want to be able to capture the observation of clinical activity or simulated clinical activity. If I observe you taking the patient's pulse, how do we want to capture that? Who is the actor, the observer or the learner, and how do we want to represent the observer and act of observation? There is a checklist profile that addresses these questions - we may be able to leverage that: https://registry.tincanapi.com/#profile/20
Thanks, Valerie, you raise a number of interesting points with this.
In summary to all of this, I'm not quite sure that at this point we need a specific Profile for 'Preceptor-reviewed'. Happy to open up the discussion if we need to.
