Abstract:

Objective: Determine and assess the impact of role-playing on students’ beliefs and attitudes towards geriatric patients.

Methods: Students in the Early Practice Experience II course participated in a role-playing activity in which they were paired up with one of their classmates. Prior to the activity, the students completed a two question reflection about physical limitations that geriatric patients may face and how the student currently accommodates for these limitations when counseling patients. For the activity, both members of the pair took turns in role-playing the pharmacist and the patient. To make the role-playing of the patient more realistic, the students were given common household items to simulate commonly occurring disease states or physical limitations seen the geriatric population. After the activity, the students were again asked to reflect on the experience of being both the patient and the pharmacist and how this activity may influence counseling geriatric patients in the future.

Results: Currently, the results are being tabulated by themes and depth of response by the students and will then be analyzed qualitatively.

Implications: This project provides an opportunity for students to practice empathy, compassion, and communication skills in a controlled setting. Through the patient role-playing experience, the students will have an opportunity to become more aware of the physical limitations that are frequently experienced by the geriatric population. With this experience, the students may develop a process to accommodate these limitations when counseling patients in the future.
