Guidelines for Actors
Thank you for consenting to assist with this communication simulation. We appreciate you supporting the student nurse in these circumstances. Can we ask if you could please sign the provided consent from prior to recording?
Choose one scenario from these three options and do your best to pretend you’re in that environment and experiencing those feelings and issues as your student nurse interviews you. It’s okay if you don’t remember specifics from the scenario, it’s just a general guide.
The interview will last approximately 5 – 6 minutes. The student should set a timer that will alarm at 5 minutes. Please assist with concluding the interview at this stage and minimise brining up new issues. We are happy for you to expand on the scenario and vary it to get into role.
We require the student to demonstrate core communication skills (introduction, appropriate body language, listening, understanding, exploration, reassurance). They are not expected to have any medical knowledge at this stage, so please don’t focus on issues such as pain or anything that expects the student to have medical knowledge.
With regards to the characters you are playing please keep them ‘average’. We are trying to build student confidence and would like them to be able to deal with ‘normal’ situations before they attempt ‘abnormal’ situations.
Thank you again for your assistance with these communication simulation scenarios.
