Evidence-based simulation scenarios for all standard and pediatric human patient simulators enhance students' critical thinking and clinical decision-making skills at all learning levels. Each scenario is presented in four steps:
Detailed preparation outlines guide you through scenario staging and implementation, accompanied by a printable packet of resources:
Staging instructions help you prepare the setting and simulator for each scenario.
An Algorithm Quick Card provides a quick-reference guide for advancing patient conditions as students progress through the simulation scenario.
A Performance Checklist itemizes the care each student is expected to provide in a format ideal for easy evaluation.
A Patient Report simulates the transfer of patient information to the student who will assume responsibility of care during a scenario (from first responder or EMT to Paramedic, or a patient transfer from one hospital/nursing home to another).
A Patient Response Guide provides scripted comments and questions the facilitator can use to encourage realistic nurse-patient communication.
Additional Patient Response Guides encourage increased student involvement and enhance the simulation experience.
Role-identifying badges help ensure a realistic simulation experience for participants.
An Observer Evaluation Rubric allows observing students to assess the performance of the simulation participants and generate post-scenario discussion.
