Abstract

Students not yet enrolled in clinical practicum completed a service learning project in which they served as conversation partners for individuals residing in a long-term care setting. As an exercise in evidence-based practice, students conducted a literature review targeting conversation partner training, developed methods and selected outcome measures, and finally, developed a research paper describing the outcomes of their experience and relating those outcomes to the literature reviewed. This poster will discuss the value of this project for achieving knowledge and skills outcomes.
