Second Edition was a winner of the AJN Award!
""Unique to this book, and what sets it apart from other books on simulations and clinical scenarios, are the personal experiences...that the authors bring to the chapters. The authors' passion, enthusiasm, and inspiration are truly reflected and demonstrated in each chapter. Authors talk about lessons learned, teaching strategies, and in-depth research... Key highlights in the book include the practice application of how to develop, implement, and evaluate clinical simulations in your nursing program. The authors make understanding simulation pedagogy an easy journey and one that is exciting that educators will want to try and embrace even when there is hesitation and uncertainty."" - Pamela R. Jeffries, PhD, RN, FAAN, ANEF; Professor, Dean; George Washington University School of Nursing; From the Foreword
When employed as a substitute for real clinical time, simulation scenarios have proven effective in bridging the gap between theory and practice. Written by educators for educators, this book provides all the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to make simulation feasible, enjoyable, and meaningful for students. In this edition, there are 25 new chapters, 20 of them scenarios for all levels and specialties, and 11 of those representing interprofessional education and team training.
This acclaimed text for nursing faculty provides detailed, step-by-step guidance on all aspects of clinical simulation. Each scenario is broken down into objectives, pre-scenario checklists, implementation plans, evaluation criteria, debriefing guidelines, and recommendations for further use. Replete with diverse scenarios, this comprehensive resource covers geriatric, pediatric, trauma, obstetric, and community-based patient scenarios. Chapters cover all levels of nursing students from pre-licensure to doctoral level, and contain the authors' own advice and experiences working in simulation around the globe.
All scenarios have been updated to adhere to the new best practice simulation standards for design, facilitator and participant criteria, interprofessional criteria, and debriefing processes. A template for creating scenarios spans the text and includes student preparation materials, forms to enhance the realness of the scenario, and checklists for practice assessment and evaluation. The revised edition now includes scenarios easily adaptable to an instructor's own lab, an international perspective, and a section on graduate nursing education and eleven new interdisciplinary clinical scenarios.
