Abstract:
This presentation will highlight strategies that educators can use to integrate simulation in post graduate critical care nursing programs. In collaboration with the Ottawa Hospital Algonquin College trained 23 novice nurses to work in an intensive care unit. The challenge identified was how to assess student's application of theory to practice. Algonquin College created simulation environments that replicated realistic complex patient scenarios that students would encounter in the intensive care units. Students were able to rehearse, using a case study methodology, nursing decision making for unstable critically ill patients. Each student was evaluated using the following criteria: Ability to incorporate theoretical knowledge; Ability to perform a focused assessment; and Ability to demonstrate a case-specific nursing intervention. Educators used sophisticated human patient simulators (HPS) to recreate clinical scenarios and taped the scenario onto DVD for students to review. Important outcomes of this project are debriefing strategies that assist both the student and the employer identify areas on ongoing clinical learning including a student report card. In summary participants will gain an understanding of the use of complex clinical scenarios including tips on the physical environment, view clips of our experience in the simulation lab and share tips for evaluation.
