Tackling the 2022 ACEND Standards Using Simulation-Based Education
Simulation-based education provides opportunities to ensure that dietetics students at all levels can gain hands-on experience with patient types that are not always readily available in practicum settings. As programs transition to the 2022 standards, the additional experiential learning opportunities afforded by simulation will be increasingly valuable. This session will highlight how simulation can be incorporated into dietetics curriculum with a variety of budgets.
- Plan simulation-based laboratories for students at all levels, including SBE best practices, such as pre-briefing and de-briefing sessions
- Justify adding simulation equipment and resources to existing dietetics programs
- Develop simulation activities to teach required knowledge and competency requirements of the 2022 ACEND standards
- 8.2.1 Engages in educational activities to maintain knowledge and to
obtain new knowledge of diseases and clinical conditions.
- 9.2.3 Applies educational theories and uses assessment results for planning process and development of materials and teaching aids.
- 9.3.5 Uses a variety of strategies to deliver education.
