Purpose/Aims: The purpose of the simulated critical care event was to facilitate inter- and intra-professional communication and collaborative skills to deliver safe and appropriate evidence-based, patient-centered care. Providing students with opportunities to learn not only assessment of the patient but communication skills with the patient and additional members of the health care team is crucial. Rationale / Background: The event involved nursing faculty, physical therapy (PT) faculty, and PT students to provide an experiential learning experience utilizing a nursing skills lab, standardized patients, and realistic tubes and equipment. The integration of nursing and PT knowledge and skills was included in the planning and implementation of the event. PT and nursing faculty utilizing adapted critical care scenarios originally created for use with high-fidelity simulation mannequins designed the event. Brief description of the undertaking: Four PT faculty, 2 nursing faculty and 50 PT students were involved in the morning event. Five PT students acted as the standardized patients. Using standardized patients for the simulation provided the students an opportunity to engage in a dynamic interaction with the patients. The standardized patients were placed in beds with tubes and moulage to simulate the diagnosis and procedures for each scenario. Nursing faculty provided the accurate moulage and placement of tubes for each scenario. The PT students were given approximately 15 minutes to review the patient scenario and then assessed and implemented a plan for the mobility of the critically ill patient. The students were provided an opportunity to employ therapeutic communication and critical thinking skills in a real-life situation. Nursing faculty were present as a source of information for questions of care that arose. Outcomes achieved: One serendipitous finding was that the standardized patients self-reported the negative emotions of the critically ill patient: immobilized in bed, attached to several lines and tubes, being addressed by multiple caregivers, and the experience of physical and emotional discomfort. PT students involved in the assessment and planning reported positive outcomes for the communication and assessment of the "patients." The PT students reported a better understanding of the role of nursing in the care of the critically ill patient and the importance of inter-professional communication to facilitate safe and appropriate movement of the patient. Conclusion: Plans in replicating the event will include nursing, pharmacy and PT students and faculty. Collaboration and communication between nursing and PT faculty added a layer of appreciation for student and patient issues that arise in the care of patients in the hospital. Students reported an increased awareness of the role of the nurse in the care of the patient and the importance of communication in all issues influencing the safe and appropriate care of all patients.
