Simulation has been used primarily to promote critical thinking and psychomotor skills in undergraduate nursing students. High fidelity simulation use in nursing students is rapidly growing as faculty seek to standardize experiences, and provide "real life" testing in situations that are high stakes, and not commonly seen in clinical settings While simulation has been used primarily to promote critical thinking skills around specific psychomotor and scenario-based competencies, little work has been accomplished with regard to communication skills. In 2002, the Institute of Medicine made a call for increased emphasis on interdisciplinary communication in response to published reports regarding patient safety errors?errors frequently linked to breakdowns in communication among healthcare practitioners. Similarly, the Joint Commission sets yearly National Patient Safety Goals. Goal 2 is "Improve the effectiveness of communication among caregivers." Designing "real life" scenarios and evaluation strategies is greatly lacking in nursing literature, and the science is in its infancy. Researchers in the School of Nursing and the School of Medicine designed a pilot study involving third year nursing students in a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program (n=41) and second year medical students (n=19). The purpose of the study was to identify key indicators with regard to interdisciplinary communication skills, in the context of Advanced Cardiac Life Skills, comparing traditional round table discussion and SimMan, a high fidelity simulation tool. Results of the study are that: 1) students in the simulation strategy reported higher levels of stress, and 2) both groups reported a heightened sense of their role on the interdisciplinary team. Further, a communication rubric tool was developed for use in future studies to more objectively evaluate communication skills. This tool is currently being refined based on the studies and simulations to date. Subsequent studies will test this tool, and extend interdisciplinary learning experiences.
