Research on the use of standardized patients (SPs) demonstrates their effectiveness in both learning and assessment. In addition to evaluating learners, SPs are also valuable in teaching, where the value of rehearsing skills in protected spaces are being increasingly recognized and valued. SPs are increasingly being used to teach shared decision making (SDM) skills, which is an advanced clinical skill that requires a grasp of evidence based medicine, risk communication as well as the ability to elicit and integrate patient preferences into future decisions. We examine new frontiers in the use of SPs in relation to SDM, including: expanding the role of SP to Standardized Patient Coach (SPC), utilizing online learning platforms as a scalable method to connect students with SPC educators, and integrating SPs into medical school curricula.
