High functioning intensivist-led interprofessional teams need appropriately prepared team members. This article describes a simulation, developed by the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy at Rutgers University, to instruct 3rd year professional pharmacy students on longitudinal pain and agitation scoring in the simulated intensive care setting during an elective critical care course. The objectives promote bedside proficiency of the student in preparation for experiential clinical rotations in the 4th year and optimizes interprofessional dialogue essential to inform clinical decision-making as the medication expert role. The article presents details of session design and preparations, implications for student learning and the profession and a discussion about engaging simulation for practice-ready professionals.
