Clinical Practice Resources Successes at the ASPE National Conference

From June 4th to June 7th, the team at Clinical Practice Resources for Training and Education was very busy presenting multiple workshops, panel discussions and presentations at the Association of Standardized Patient Educators National Conference.  Early Sunday morning CPR’s Assistant Director, Samm Maloney and Director, Isle Polonko, presented a workshop alongside esteemed colleagues from across the United States and Canada as part of ASPE’s GTA/MUTA Special Interest Group. This experiential and interactive workshop was originally designed by Isle Polonko in conjunction with long time friend and colleague, Scott George from Clinical Skills USA.  The goals of the workshop were to train GTA/MUTA administrators how to perform the female and male genitourinary exams from the perspective of a trainer while walking in their students’ shoes.  It is always highly acclaimed and very, very well attended.  Monday Samm and Isle presented a number of workshops on GTA/MUTA program methodology with the SIG, and Samm presented her highly acclaimed workshops on utilization of GTAs and MUTAs in LGBTQIA training curricula.  Tuesday was another full day of presentations by CPR team members including trainer Marc Daniel Claflin and lead trainer Richard Claflin in training the trainer workshops.  Reconnecting and working with colleagues is always a highlight of the ASPE conference as is the famous SIG wine and cheese reception!  Keep a lookout for more blog posts from Clinical Practice Resources about our very successful conference presentations.  As always, feel free to email us with questions about the presentations or requests for information. To Marc, Samm and Richard: Congratulations on a job very, very well done!
