Within communication training in the 6th year of study, the handover is practiced with the so-called SBAR-schema – a concept for the standardization of the patient handover.

In this course, SPs (standardized/simulated patients) play the role of physicians. Through student surveys, the aim of this study is to determine how students experience this SP role-play and how authentic they deem the situation to be.
