More About ASPE Standards of Best Practice

ASPE members from around the world have contributed to the development of the ASPE Standards of Best Practice (SOBP). The standards were written to ensure the growth, integrity, and safe application of SP-based education practices. The standards identify five domains: safe work environment; case development; SP training for role portrayal, feedback, and completion of assessment instruments; program management, and professional development.

The domains are divided into principles that are elucidated by key practices that offer practical guidelines for desired outcomes and safe simulation practices. The standards have been published in Advances in Simulation. Note: The ASPE Standards of Best Practice (SOBP) have been translated into other languages with the aspirational goal of extending ASPE SOBP based on institutional resources. The translated versions are provided here as submitted by those who have completed the translations.
