Abstract: Surgical training is long and complex. At the core of clinical practice is communication. Voice is central to relationships of care. Communication and other person-centred competencies are well articulated in surgical training programs. Simulated participant (SP) methodology has seen significant development over its contemporary history. Most commonly in paediatrics SPs portray the roles of parents. However, children and adolescents as SPs are increasingly employed to support the development and assessment of the complex concept of voice. There are specific considerations in all phases of SP-based work, and these are heightened for children and adolescents. This article explores contemporary SP practices in health professional education with a focus on paediatric surgery training.
