D. Simulation IPPE Component

The second (2) component of the IPPE consist of a series of simulations of pharmacy practice experiences. These simulations will take place at various times during the curriculum and involve structured activities that are intended to replicate or simulate selected activities/duties/processes that occur in pharmacy practice.

1. Objectives - At the completion of the simulation component of the IPPE Program at Southwestern Oklahoma State University College of Pharmacy, the students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate basic skills in gathering, interpreting, and evaluating selected patient information
  2. Perform CPR skills as appropriate to emergency medical situations
  3. Conduct basic physical assessments on patients (blood pressure measurement, assessment of cardiovascular and respiratory activity, etc)
  4. Demonstrate skills in blood pressure measurement such that when the student participates in public blood pressure screening events, of the measurements of blood pressure would be considered accurate and valid readings
  5. Triage patients for potential blood pressure issues and determine whether patients would be appropriate for pharmacist-delivered care or whether patients should be referred to other health care providers for management
  6. Administer immunizations via the intramuscular, subcutaneous, and intradermal routes of administration
  7. Provide point-of-care and patient-centered immunization services to the public, under the supervision of immunizing pharmacists

Note: Additional Objectives will be added as the IPPE Simulations are expanded to include the use of the Neehr Perfect Electronic Health Record in the COP Program
