Multidiscipline care plan consultation for an adult with cognitive and communication impairment

An interprofessional scenario was written by La Trobe University with the aim to involve simulated patients who have an underlying intellectual disability with a group of undergraduate students from various health science professions. Bringing students together in an interprofessional scenario is important to develop teamwork and communication skills, readying students for clinical practice.

Our intention is to build awareness and knowledge of treating people with intellectual disabilities. Having students converse with people with genuine underlying disabilities and previous experience of health care systems as simulated patients enables an authentic experience for learners.
