Moulage Magic on a Shoestring
This hands-on workshop will review moulage techniques to enhance realism and invite participants to suspend disbelief for simulation-based learning experiences. Strategies to enhance fidelity for both manikin-based and simulated/standardized patients will be provided. Attendees are invited to practice creating realistic moulage using readily available and inexpensive supplies. This session will involve working with materials that may transfer or cause staining; participants should dress accordingly or bring smocks. (A limited number of ponchos may be available.)
Following this session, participants will be able to:
- Determine the level of fidelity/realism needed for simulation-based learning experiences
- Identify readily available resources to create realism using moulage techniques
- Discuss participant, environmental, and practical considerations when selecting and utilizing moulage effects
- Practice applying moulage techniques learned during this hands-on workshop.
