  • Anxiety Caused by Simulated Prehospital Emergency Care
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Clinical Simulation in Nursing, Volume 29Author(s): Anna AbelssonAbstractDuring the simulation, participants experience different degrees of stress and anxiety. It could be described as “Anxiety is like perpetually hearing the enemy music but never seeing the threat”. This study aimed to describe the Emergency Medical Services personnel's feelings of anxiety during simulation. The study had a qualitative design with interviews of 28 participants. The data were analyzed using content analysis. The result shows how the simulation could be perceived as a stage performance in the form of a theatre. The perceived acting was unpleasant and embarrassing due to unfamiliarity to perform. To be scrutinized meant having spectators reviewing ones' performance. It was considered more natural to care for actors than manikins. The interaction and connection with a human, even unconscious, were more natural. To care for a human did not require the imagination to empathize in the simulation.
       
  • Advance Care Planning Simulation-Based Learning for Nurses: Mixed Methods
           Pilot Study
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Clinical Simulation in Nursing, Volume 29Author(s): Amanda Pereira-Salgado, Steve Philpot, Jo Schlieff, Lisa O'Driscoll, Amber MillsAbstractBackgroundSimulation-based learning (SBL) is beneficial for training health care professionals in advance care planning (ACP) or end-of-life communication.MethodsACP SBL intervention with actors was developed for outpatient nurses (n = 13) based on Jeffries' simulation design framework. Quasi-experimental design examined pre-post differences in knowledge, self-confidence, and behaviour. Qualitative description explored benefits, improvements, and impact on clinical practice.ResultsSBL elicited a statistically significant change in participants' self-confidence in initiating (z = -2.859, p = .004) and revisiting (z = −2.565, p = .010) ACP conversations. Qualitative findings supported increased knowledge, self-confidence, and understanding with some reported implementation into clinical practice.ConclusionsWith appropriate training, nurses may be better engaged in ACP.
       
  • Comparing Two Teaching Methods on Nursing Students' Ethical
           Decision-Making Level
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Clinical Simulation in Nursing, Volume 29Author(s): Tulay Basak, Birgul CeritAbstractBackgroundHealth care services have become increasingly complex and led to new ethical problems, which requires strong ethical decision-making skills. This study was conducted to compare the effects of case analysis and simulation with standardized patients in a Nursing Ethics Course on students' ethical decision-making levels.MethodsThe study was designed as a quasi-experimental study. The participants were composed of 70 undergraduate nursing students. A sociodemographic data and the Nursing Dilemma Test were used to collect data.ResultsThe mean pretest Nursing Principled Thinking and Practical Considerations scores of the students in the simulation group were higher than those in the case analysis group. The difference between pretest mean scores of case analysis and simulation groups was not statistically significant (p> .05).ConclusionCompared with the case analysis method, simulation by using standardized patients was found to be a more effective method to develop students' ethical decision-making skills.
       
  • Virtual Gaming Simulation in Nursing Education: A Mixed-Methods Study
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Clinical Simulation in Nursing, Volume 29Author(s): Margaret Verkuyl, Michelle HughesAbstractBackgroundVirtual simulations can provide students with an opportunity to apply theoretical concepts to simulated clinical experiences.MethodA mixed-method design using surveys and focus groups was used to explore student satisfaction, self-confidence, engagement, and simulation design.ResultsHigh levels of effective simulation design elements were reported. Survey results indicated positive outcomes in self-confidence and satisfaction. Focus group data revealed three main themes: virtual gaming simulation design elements, expanding knowledge, and experiential learning.ConclusionsThe high level of realism and authentic storyline in this virtual gaming simulation contributed to the learning experience and enhanced knowledge, engagement, and self-confidence among bridging nursing students.

Michael YoungAbstractVirtual reality (VR) will be widely adopted by nursing within the next five years as a simulation method. The confusion generated by the various emerging definitions of VR led to the authors to review various definitions and to make a recommendation for the use of the concepts immersion and presence as a way to define VR.
       
  • French Translation and Validation of the Mayo High Performance Teamwork
           Scale for Nursing Students in a High-Fidelity Simulation Context
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 21 March 2019Source: Clinical Simulation in NursingAuthor(s): Émilie Gosselin, Mélanie Marceau, Christian Vincelette, Charles-Olivier Daneau, Stéphan Lavoie, Isabelle LedouxAbstractBackgroundThe Mayo High Performance Teamwork Scale (MHPTS) was developed to measure teamwork skills in simulation. As no such tool was available in French, the main purpose was to translate the MHPTS. The secondary objective was to evaluate the reliability of this scale for use with French-Canadian nursing students.MethodThe cross-cultural adaptation followed four steps: (a) translation, (b) back-translation, (c) committee of experts, and (d) pretest. In regard to reliability, internal consistency was measured with coefficient alpha in a pilot study.ResultsThe committee of experts (n = 7) judged the content as clear and comprehensive. Comments from the pretest were used to improve the scale (n = 44). Internal consistency is acceptable (α = 0.74) among nursing students (n = 70).ConclusionThe Canadian French version of the MHPTS has demonstrated acceptable reliability and is now available to assess teamwork in nursing students.

  • Emerging Evidence Toward a 2:1 Clinical to Simulation Ratio: A Study
           Comparing the Traditional Clinical and Simulation Settings
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 21 March 2019Source: Clinical Simulation in NursingAuthor(s): Nancy Sullivan, Sandra M. Swoboda, Tonya Breymier, Laura Lucas, Janice Sarasnick, Tonya Rutherford-Hemming, Chakra Budhathoki, Suzan (Suzie) Kardong-EdgrenAbstractBackgroundThere is limited evidence comparing the clinical and simulation environments.MethodsThis multicenter observational study compared traditional clinical to simulation on the type, number, and level of educational activities as determined by Miller's Pyramid.ResultsForty-two students' experience revealed that skills, physical assessment, teaching, and critical thinking activities occurred more frequently in simulation, with safety interventions more common in clinical. In addition, in simulation, students performed a greater percentage of activities in higher levels of Millers Pyramid, “Knows How”; 12.8% as compared with 8.6% in clinical, and “Does”; 66.3% as compared with 46.2% in clinical. Notably, the activities in “Does” were completed in approximately 1/5 of the time in simulation; 440 minutes, as compared with clinical; 2,137 minutes.ConclusionThe intensity and efficiency of simulation was demonstrated through the completion of more activities in higher levels of Millers Pyramid in significantly less time than clinical providing emerging evidence toward a 2:1 clinical to simulation ratio.
       
  • Impact of Advanced Nurse Teamwork Training on Trauma Team Performance
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 18 March 2019Source: Clinical Simulation in NursingAuthor(s): Ellen M. Harvey, Daniel Freeman, Andi Wright, Jennifer Bath, V. Kristen Peters, Gary Meadows, Mark E. Hamill, Misty Flinchum, Katherine H. Shaver, Bryan R. CollierAbstractBackgroundPrior studies suggest interprofessional teamwork training improves trauma resuscitation team performance and outcomes. This study explores whether additional improvements are observed with advanced trauma nurse training in comparison with prior interprofessional teamwork studies conducted in the same setting.MethodsThis is a prospective, quasiexperimental preintervention and postintervention study incorporating TeamSTEPPS® with interprofessional simulations.ResultsTrauma nurses' self-confidence in skills increased significantly in all areas after training (p < .05). Trauma resuscitation team performance improved significantly after training but degraded between 6 and 12 months after training. The greatest decline in performance over time was seen in the leadership domain (p < .05).ConclusionsStudy findings support prior studies, suggesting teamwork training improves team attitudes and performance. Interprofessional trauma resuscitation team training provided every 6 months may support sustained improvement gains over time.

  • An Escape Room as a Simulation Teaching Strategy
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 13 March 2019Source: Clinical Simulation in NursingAuthor(s): Neysa Brown, Wendy Darby, Helen CoronelAbstractBackgroundThis teaching project describes the process of creating, implementing, and appraising the use of escape room concepts within a urosepsis high-fidelity simulation scenario.MethodInstead of a locked room, Breakout EDU locked boxes were incorporated into a clinical simulation. Nursing students applied concepts learned in class and analyzed patient data to obtain clues. These clues helped determine the combination to four locks and progress through the simulation within 60 minutes. After completing the escape room simulation, each group had an opportunity to gather for a team photo, which they posted on social media.ResultsStudents reported the escape game contributed to their learning and improved their ability to delegate tasks and work as a team. Preliminary observations reveal that “time” may be a significant factor associated with this teaching strategy.ConclusionThe concept of an escape room or serious game-based learning was found to be an engaging teaching strategy by faculty and students.
       
  • Nurse-Driven Simulations to Prepare and Educate for a Clinical Trial
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Clinical Simulation in Nursing, Volume 28Author(s): Erin Fisher Kenny, Melanie Martin, Andrew McClain, Rachel Stanley, Jessica Saunders, Charmaine Lo, Daniel M. CohenAbstractBackgroundTo date, there is limited literature exploring the effectiveness of training staff for a clinical trial via high-fidelity simulations. This study was conducted to explore this educational modality for an emergency department (ED)–based clinical trial.MethodsED nurse educator–driven simulations were deployed for a clinical trial to train diverse ED staff and were described. An anonymous survey was then conducted to assess staff knowledge regarding the clinical trial and participation in trial simulations.ResultsOver 21 months, 13 seizure simulations were run with 97 participants. ED staff who attended a simulation were ∼3 times more likely to correctly answer survey questions about the clinical trial. The vast majority of simulation participants (95.8%) found them to be helpful.ConclusionSimulations provided lessons to improve the knowledge and operations of a clinical trial. Nursing staff was instrumental during simulations and in the development of site-specific processes. Future clinical trials that involve multidisciplinary groups and time-sensitive actions may benefit from this approach.
       
  • The Impact of Supplemental Simulation on Newly Licensed Registered Nurses
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Clinical Simulation in Nursing, Volume 28Author(s): Aimee Woda, Kristina Thomas Dreifuerst, Mauricio Garnier-VillarrealAbstractBackgroundChallenges exist for nursing students as they transition to their role as newly licensed registered nurses (NLRNs) due to a mismatch between their perceived readiness and role competency and the demands of the practice environment. Simulations with debriefing may be one strategy to better prepare students for the role of a NLRN. The purpose of this study was to explore whether supplementing traditional clinical experiences with simulation versus substituting simulation for traditional clinical experiences had an impact on NLRNs' perception of competence, work stress, and job satisfaction.SampleA convenience sample of 115 NLRNs from two successive graduating classes in a Midwestern traditional baccalaureate nursing program who participated in the same curriculum with different uses of simulation were recruited.MethodsA quasi-experimental design was used to compare the two groups of NLRNs at six months of practice.ResultsThe NLRNs with supplemented simulation had higher job satisfaction.ConclusionThese results suggest that programs that use simulation to supplement traditional clinical experiences may lead to increased job satisfaction in NLRNs.
       
  • Simulation Exposure Improves Clinical Skills for Postgraduate Critical
           Care Nurses
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Clinical Simulation in Nursing, Volume 28Author(s): Joannet Hardenberg, Indrajeetsinh Rana, Kathleen ToriAbstractIntroductionSimulation training is a widely accepted tool to improve clinical skills for critical care nurses. Several studies have demonstrated the benefits of simulation training in the arena of postgraduate nursing. To our knowledge, quantitative evidence supporting the benefits of simulation training on critical care students' clinical performance is lacking.MethodIn this study, participants enrolled in postgraduate studies were exposed to an immersive simulation hurdle that mirrored a real-life emergency scenario. Four skill categories addressing clinical performance were used. All participants received theoretical underpinnings related to the clinical hurdle via a conventional teaching method. Participants were then randomly categorized into control and test groups. The test group was involved in simulation activities before the hurdle assessment, whereas the control group attempted the simulation hurdle without prior exposure. Data were collected by an independent assessor using a customized tool.ResultsThis study demonstrated a significant improvement in two clinical areas in the test group compared with the control group. This improvement, however, was restricted to “focused patient assessment” and “emergency intervention” skills. There was no significant difference in the skill sets of “primary response” and “consultation with doctor.”
       
  • How Does Simulation Impact Building Competency and Confidence in
           Recognition and Response to the Adult and Paediatric Deteriorating Patient
           Among Undergraduate Nursing Students'
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Clinical Simulation in Nursing, Volume 28Author(s): Sandra Goldsworthy, J. David Patterson, Martie Dobbs, Arfan Afzal, Shelley DeboerAbstractBackgroundThe ability to recognize and respond to a deteriorating adult or paediatric patient is critical to prevention of poor patient outcomes. Simulation is one teaching/learning strategy that can prepare nursing students as they plan to transition to practice. Recognition and response to haemodynamic instability, respiratory distress, cardiac arrest, a massive haemorrhage, or a paediatric seizure has the potential to save patient lives.MethodIn this quasi-experimental pre/post study, participants were randomly assigned to a treatment or a control group (N = 59). The treatment group received a 16-hour simulation intervention held over two days that were two weeks apart. In addition, the treatment group completed two virtual simulations (one adult and one paediatric case).ResultsA new measure, Clinical Self-efficacy, was piloted in this study and showed a high internal consistency (0.91). Significant improvement in all items on the Clinical Self-efficacy tool was seen in the treatment group after the intervention. On the contrary, there was no significant improvement in any of the Clinical Self-efficacy items in the control group.Conclusion(s)The hybrid simulation intervention proved effective in improving confidence and competence in the recognition and response to deteriorating patients. Further multisite research is needed to further explore the significance of the simulation intervention.
       
  • Video Reflection in Discharge Communication Skills Training With Simulated
           Patients: A Qualitative Study of Nursing Students' Perceptions
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Clinical Simulation in Nursing, Volume 28Author(s): Sharon MacLean, Fiona Geddes, Michelle Kelly, Phillip DellaAbstractBackgroundThe use of video-assisted reflection as part of the debriefing process is a growing area of interest in simulation-based education. To further develop knowledge in this field, this study explored nursing students' reflections on their experience and learning after independently viewing audiovisual recordings of themselves engaging in a patient discharge simulation.MethodsA qualitative study design was used. Students demonstrated their discharge communication skills with simulated patients in three learning intervention groups. Each student privately viewed an audiovisual recording of their simulation session before attending a group debriefing. Audio recordings from 35 debriefing sessions were transcribed for both content analysis and thematic analysis. The sample included 141 nursing students enrolled in a Bachelor of Science (Nursing) program.ResultsSix themes and four subthemes were identified. Themes were realism, nonverbal communication, verbal communication skills, reflective learning, becoming a nurse, and patient needs. Two word clouds using wordcloud.com were generated from the content analysis of students' thoughts and feelings about the simulation experience.ConclusionUsing simulated patients and video-assisted reflection when teaching communication skills resulted in students reporting a high level of self-awareness, confidence, and a sense of achievement. Students indicated that the process helped to gain a greater understanding of the importance of effective verbal and nonverbal communication skills during interactions with patients. Students reflected on the importance of engaging with patients and considering their postdischarge needs and well-being as part of discharge communication practises.
       
  • Enhancing Health Care Personnel's Response to ER Violence Using
           Situational Simulation
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Clinical Simulation in Nursing, Volume 28Author(s): Jen-Chieh Wu, Hao-Yu Chen, Jane Lee Hsieh, Daniel L. Clinciu, Heng-Hsin TungBackgroundThe emergency room (ER) has the highest rate of workplace violence among all departments in health care institutions. Workplace violence significantly affects the retention rate among health care professionals in the ER. Studies reveal that health care institutions find it extremely challenging to reduce ER violence and to protect their workers. This study aims to provide a means to prevent ER violence by designing simulation training based on clinical cases of ER violence.MethodOur study used a single pretest/posttest control group design, which focused on ERs from teaching hospitals in various districts of Taipei, Taiwan. A total of 34 participants who were working as physicians, registered nurses, security guards, and social workers participated. The study was based on Kolb's experiential learning theory and employed standardized patients to simulate clinical cases of ER violence in four stages of learning and evaluation effectiveness: (a) concrete experience, (b) reflective observation, (c) abstract conceptualization, and (d) active experimentation.ResultsHealth care personnel posttest scores and delayed posttest scores for self-efficacy as related to ER violence (Wald χ2 = 85.202, p
