PURPOSES/AIMS: Simulation is a time and cost intensive teaching modality which consists of both hands on experience and a debriefing session. But the impact of these simulation components is uncertain. AIM: Using a one-group, repeated measures design, the aim of this study was to examine the impact of simulation components (hand on alone and hands on plus debriefing) on heart failure (HF) knowledge.
RATIONALE/CONCEPTUAL BASIS/BACKGROUND: The theoretical framework used was the one developed by the NLN, "Nursing Education Simulation Framework" which is based on the theoretical and empirical literature in the area of simulation in both the nursing and medical literature. It was developed and tested through the NLN/Laerdal Simulation Study (Jeffries, 2005).
METHODS: Following IRB approval at each institution, 162 students (age 25.7 +/- 6.6; gender =85.5% female) from 4 nursing schools were studied in groups of 5 at the same point in their curriculum using a HF simulation (Laerdal, New York) and HF knowledge pre-test and parallel post-tests after specific stages of the HF simulation (given after the hands on [Post-test 1] and another after debriefing [Post-test 2]). Statistical analyses included ANOVA with post hoc T-tests.
RESULTS: Significant differences (p<0.001) were found between the Pre-test and Post-test 1; Pre-test and Post-test 2; and Post-test 1 and Post Test 2 scores (chart). Of particular interest was that HF knowledge scores decreased after the hands on component of the simulation, whereas they dramatically improved after debriefing.
IMPLICATIONS: As most of the gains in HF knowledge were after the debriefing, this data identifies debriefing as the most vital component of the simulation experience. Thus, the debriefing experience should be emphasized in a standardized simulation learning experience. Further investigation is needed to determine the necessity for faculty to run the hands on portion of the simulation itself and to evaluate the impact of debriefing/intensive teaching without the hands on simulation component.
