The Victorian Simulated Patient Network (VSPN)
Welcome to the Victorian Simulated Patient Network (VSPN) website. The VSPN aims to provide individuals interested in simulated patient (SP) work.
SPs are individuals trained to portray real patients. SPs contribute to the health professional education in many ways. There is a spectrum of practices that are expanding.
The VSPN aims to connect SPs, educators, students, clinicians and others through this website.
In November 2014, our 437 membership came from Australia, Asia, Europe, Canada, the US, Middle East and other countries.
Over the next few months you will notice differences to the website with new tabs, news items and new resources. We will also have a discussion board for members to share their experiences and seek advice from other members.
