SimPHARM’s engine is built leveraging the most up-to-date drug lists, categories, formulations, side-effects, and interactions, and acts in accordance with pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic principles. The following resources are utilized in combination to construct a highly realistic, physiologically accurate experience within SimPHARM:
SimPHARM acknowledges that professional degree programs in pharmacy are bound to national accreditation standards and provides a virtual clinical decision training platform to support PharmD program needs around specific qualifying criteria. This aids in helping stay in line with current ACPE Standards. Institutions are able to leverage SimPHARM in concordance with program goals to satisfy regulatory expectations in specified areas of evaluation. SimPHARM can, both directly and indirectly, contribute to institutional accreditation practices and speaks to relevant curriculum topics, including Pharmacology, Clinical Pharmacokinetics, Patient Assessment, and Pharmacotherapeutics.
Qualifying standards assert that institutional curricula must emphasize active learning pedagogy, content integration, knowledge acquisition, skill development, and applying knowledge and skills to therapeutic decision-making. SimPHARM’s realistic case-based training scenarios provide students with the ability to acquire the ideal breadth of requisite knowledge and skills. It also facilitates the maturation of professional attitudes and behaviors that accrediting standards deem essential.
“It’s a patient simulation which you don’t experience in a classroom.”
“I liked that it had the time pressure of a real patient.”
“Seeing how clinical decisions have real consequences and feeling a sense of responisibility.”
“See real life how they [the patient] will react and how everyone is not the same.”
“It felt like we were using our skills in real life practice.”
