Welcome to the Simulated Patient Network – SPN (previously, Victorian Simulated Patient Network – VSPN) website. The SPN aims to provide individuals interested in simulated patient (SP) practice with a network to share with and from each other. SPs are individuals trained to portray real patients. SPs contribute to health professional education in many ways. There is a spectrum of SP practices that are expanding. The SPN aims to connect SPs, educators, students, clinicians and others through this website.
CHANGES TO THE SPN E-LEARNING MODULES AFTER 1ST APRIL 2021
We are currently no longer accepting new registrations for the SPN e-learning modules. If you already have access, we strongly recommend that you complete all your SPN learning modules before the 1st of April 2021. After the 1st of April, the modules as you currently see, will no longer be accessible via this site. Changes are coming to the way these modules will be accessed. But we promise you it will be an exciting and new change. We will be releasing new details soon.
