Standardized Patient

Standardized Patient

A Standardized Patient provides consistent and standard responses and is mostly used extensively in testing of clinical skills of students, usually as a part of an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE). Standardized Patients are likely to provide more reliable and consistent reactions to questions asked by health care providers. The Standardized Patient will respond to questions and situations exactly the same regardless of how the healthcare worker interacts with the Standardized Patient.
