Table 1 Application of the SCIPE program to the presage, process and product educational framework

From: Interprofessional simulation in a student community clinic: insights from an educational framework and contact theory

Presage is the relationship between the personal and situational elements of learning, the context.
The context in the SCIPE program was that the simulation was conducted in a community health service with students from different disciplines. Facilitators and simulated clients were the ‘teachers’ in the activity so their personal characteristics and previous learning also influenced this dimension.
Process includes approaches to learning.
In the SCIPE program, facilitators and simulated clients trained in small groups and the activity was conducted in small groups where the training and learning with simulation were conducted with a shared structure.
Products are the outcomes of learning.
In the SCIPE program, these included trained simulated clients, clinic facilitators and health professional students who experienced interprofessional collaboration. This collaboration afforded students the opportunity to improve interviewing skills, learn more about each other’s roles, the programs of community health services and collaborative person-centred goal setting.
