Allowing flexibility for your time and resources you may use each other, friend, family member, or barbie to demonstrate how you would position your patient in the follow position:

Supine, Prone, Beach Chair, Lateral, Lithotomy (may pretend/improvise stir-ups)

Each position discussed is worth 8 points:
