This course provides an overview of Simucase and examines the benefits of incorporating computer-based simulations into PT and PTA programs. It discusses methodologies for pre-briefing, providing feedback, and debriefing students and explains strategies for integrating simulations into a curriculum. It also discusses initial pilot study results. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
