Title:
Does High-Fidelity Simulation Training Develop Nurse-Physician Teams?
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) Communication and teamwork have gained attention as teams across the international landscape commit to building a safe patient culture. In particular, communication and teamwork across disciplines has emerged as key to group cohesion and collaboration and satisfaction with patient care decisions. Simulation-based training has gained acceptance for teaching technical skills yet little is known about the use of simulation to foster communication and teamwork across disciplines and sustain the gains beyond the training experience. The purpose of this poster is to address the effectiveness of high-fidelity simulation training on group cohesion and collaboration and satisfaction with patient care decisions. The skills of communication and teamwork across disciplines are essential to patient quality and safety yet strategies to embed these skills remain elusive. In this study, nurses and physicians from an inpatient surgical urology unit participated in three clinical scenarios during training in a high-fidelity simulation center. The data were provided by a group of nurse and physician volunteers before and after training. The insights shed light on group cohesion and collaboration and satisfaction with patient care decisions over time. Findings have led us to conclude that simulation training may be an effective strategy to build nurse-physician teams. An unexpected finding was the positive influence of the training for the youngest members (Millennial Generation) of the nurse and physician participants. At the completion of reviewing this poster, the participant will be able to 1) identify the benefits realized from high-fidelity simulation training after nurses and physicians have returned to their environment, and 2) discuss generational influences that may impact learning needs of high-fidelity simulation participants.
