A pilot feasibility study of virtual patient simulation to enhance social work students’ brief mental health assessment skills (bibtex)
by Micki Washburn, Patrick Bordnick, Albert “Skip” Rizzo
Abstract:
This study presents preliminary feasibility and acceptability data on the use of virtual patient (VP) simulations to develop brief assessment skills within an interdisciplinary care setting. Results support the acceptability of technology-enhanced simulations and offer preliminary evidence for an association between engagement in VP practice simulations and improvements in diagnostic accuracy and clinical interviewing skills. Recommendations and next steps for research on technologyenhanced simulations within social work are discussed.
