Simulated clients role-play scenarios in educational and testing environments. Acting as patients, clients, employers or in other key roles, they recreate real-world situations that allow participants to practice their skills or show their expertise. Simulation can be useful to a wide range of professional organizations, including health care, business and education.
Our simulated patients and clients
Touchstone Institute recruits highly trained, experienced professionals to provide simulation services. The benefits of working with our simulated clients and trainers include:
- Rigorous screening and training
Our simulated clients can perform a wide range of roles. Trainers work with small groups to standardize roles, when needed. For high-stakes assessments, our trusted process includes training, a dry run and final sign-off with an experienced examiner before official testing takes place.
- Large and diverse database
Our database of screened, fully trained simulated clients comprises over 1,000 men and women of all ages (16 to 75), physical types, ethnic groups and backgrounds.
- Broad range of skills
Our resources have a complex set of skills that allows them to easily adapt to various types of professional practice scenarios, including assessment and teaching settings, in medical, health and other sectors or disciplines. They are strong communicators, learn quickly, accept direction and adapt easily.
