Experiential learning is a key methodology for enhancing effective health professional-patient communication and actors, as simulated patients, are a core component of such learning. Constructive feedback from actors reflecting on the experience as the patient can provide a safe learning environment where mistakes can be made and new skills tried with no harmful side effects for the "patient".
