However, the best way to live life through any illness, whether that be asthma or cancer, is first and foremost to have a positive outlook on life. A psychological way of coping with chronic illnesses is through appraisals (Gurung, 2013, p 309). Being sick and knowing that one has support through family and friends, can help cope with the idea of being chronically ill.

It has been argued that the shift towards patient-conscious medical aid is necessary and that simulation in its widest sense can be used to support this process. However, sensitivity to what we are simulating is essential, especially when simulations purport to address patient perspectives. The essay first reviews the history of medical education "centeredness," then outlines ways in which real and simulated patients are currently involved in medical education. Patient-focused simulation is described as a means of offering patients' perspectives during the acquisition of clinical procedural and surgical skills. The authors draw on their experiences of developing Patient-focused simulation and preliminary work to "authenticate" simulations from patient perspectives.

Problem Based Learning will help me develop my clinical skills as well as the professional and interpersonal skills that all healthcare providers require to succeed. Additionally, I believe that I will find PBL to be far more engaging for me as a student. Through the active learning environment that the program promotes with self-directed study and group discussion sessions, PBL aligns with my personality in such a way that will ultimately result in a better and more enjoyable
