Submitted by: Kerensa Peterson, NBOME Chicago

Scholarly literature has expanded on the benefits of literacy programs designed to get parents and children between the ages of 6 months to 5 years reading together. Many of those studies have shown that training in residency on programs like Reach Out and Read may improve knowledge, skills, and attitudes toward pediatric literacy. Previous studies, however, lacked simulation experiences in which learners can practice the communication skills necessary to engage with patients and caregivers.

This research team set out to incorporate simulated experiences with pediatric SPs and standardized parents into a strong curriculum training program. This article discusses their outcomes and their approach to engaging interprofessional learners in this curriculum.
