Abstract:
4. Background/Purpose: Delay in CPR standards of care could be influenced by the nursing team members’ lack of confidence, knowledge, and experience with cardiac arrest events.1,2,3 In-situ simulation has demonstrated positive outcomes in increasing participants’ knowledge, skills, and confidence of clinical events.4,5,6,7 However, there is a gap in the literature regarding how to expand the benefits of in-situ simulation beyond just the participants. The purpose of this study was to determine if repetitive in-site codes and disseminated debriefings impact nursing team member’s knowledge and comfort levels during code situations. Methods: Resuscitation Self-Efficacy Scale8 and knowledge assessments were collected to establish baseline knowledge and confidence levels. During each in-situ simulation, data was collected that measured participants’ skills in resuscitation. This information assisted in creating a debriefing flyer that was disseminated among unit staff. The same assessment data was collected at the end of the study for pre and post intervention comparison. Findings: There were 48 pre-surveys and 31 post surveys completed out of a population of 160. No significance was found between pre and post comfort or knowledge levels. Challenges to in-situ simulations were reported through researchers’ anecdotal notes and participants’ comments; however, 90% of the participants reported they would participate in another simulation. Conclusion/Implications/Discussion: Despite the challenges to in-situ simulation, nursing teams want more thus leading to the question, “how can we overcome challenges of in-situ simulation and benefit the entire unit?” This presentation will discuss lessons learned and offer new perspectives on engaging the entire unit with in-situ simulation.
