Work We Do
Undergraduate Teaching Sessions & OSCEs
Role players regularly attend teaching sessions and OSCEs for medical, pharmacy, optometry and psychology departments at several UK Universities.
They assist in a wide range of teaching and communication sessions, such as breaking bad news and breast awareness days.
Using role players improves general communication skills, allows participants to deal with challenging behaviour and provides focused and structured feedback in and out of role.
Our popular Skype sessions help CSA candidates prepare for the exam, breaking down the myths around passing the CSA and helping candidates prepare successfully.
These are ideal to reflect on strengths and weaknesses in data gathering, inter personal skills and shared management options, all crucial to passing this high stakes assessment.
We provide verbal and written feedback, and have a large bank of CSA standard cases to help trainees prepare with confidence.
Postgraduate Specialist Training
Organisations such as CPPE & NHSBT book our role players to be involved in national specialist advanced training courses.
These are usually in small groups, concentrating on difficult or more challenging conversations, and breaking bad news.
These sessions often include the use of forum theatre (where participants can alter behaviour in a safe setting) and living anatomy models, where role players are drawn on and examined.
