Understanding barriers and facilitators impacting the integration of computer-based simulation in pharmacy practice education (UTAS Students' survey)

Computer-based simulations in healthcare education can be defined as virtual simulations of clinical scenarios that allow users to replicate the role of a health professional in a given situation. In pharmacy practice education, these scenarios can be replicating dispensing, patient communication, community pharmacy practice tasks ..etc. Examples of available widely used platforms are (MyDispense, Pharmacy Simulator and SimPharm among others)

It has been observed that the use of computer-based simulation in pharmacy practice education lags behind other healthcare professions. The purpose of this study is to understand different barriers and facilitators impacting the use of computer-based simulation in a pharmacy practice education context.

Participants will complete the survey online. It will take up to 15 minutes. There are no consequences to individuals as a result of participation (or non-participation). All data used are non-identifiable, ensuring the confidentiality and anonymity of individual participants.

Once you complete and submit the survey, you will be directed to a separate page for optional participation in a draw to potentially receive one of ten digital gift cards valued at $50 (AUD).
