Well designed scenarios should integrate with the curriculum they are specifically meant to relate to so that candidates can see the relevance to their learning. Learning objectives should be clear and should be co-created by all stakeholders at the planning stage. Scenarios should be written with the intention of allowing students to display the skills and behaviours that would indicate that the learning objectives have been achieved. Using scenarios to demonstrate and evoke evidence-based practice from candidates and being clear about the desired learning objectives are paramount. The scenario script should be as detailed, comprehensive, and unambiguous as possible. Once written, scenarios should be practised and modified as required.
