Develop the critical assessment, clinical reasoning, and nursing care skills they need to deliver and practice safe and effective patient care. Each realistic, patient-care simulation focuses on a defined clinical domain, critical knowledge and skills, levels of competency, evidenced-based practice guidelines, National Patient Safety Goals, and research-based design characteristics.
Providing more than just a comprehensive history, critical vocabulary, insightful compilation of motivations, and clear explanation of the state-of-the-art of modern clinical trial simulation, this book supplies a rigorous framework for employing simulation as an experiment, according to a predefined simulation plan, that reflects good simulation practices. The book discusses how to clinical trial designs according to their probability for success, techniques to define distributions of virtual subjects' characteristics, methods to determine the sensitivity of the trial design, and the population relationship between dosing schedules and patient response.

Case Studies and Clinical Simulations for Respiratory Care, 1st Edition, give students the most comprehensive and realistic review for the difficult Clinical Simulation Exam (CSE) portion of the NBRC registry exam. Featuring real-life patient management scenarios in a computerized test-taking environment modeled after the NBRC CSE experience, this versatile review prepares students to succeed both in the classroom and in the real-world clinical setting. UNIQUE! Clinical simulations offer real-life patient management scenarios that provide users with the chance to practice information gathering and decision making before taking the very difficult NBRC CSE portion of the RRT exam or before moving into the clinical setting. UNIQUE! Case Studies with patient data records provide real-world samples of similar charted patient data you will likely see in the clinical setting. UNIQUE! Software compatibility makes the program ideal in various learning management system (LMS) environments and future 3PPs. Scoring scale similar to NBRC's CSE provides familiarity and practice for real-life testing. Software program recreates the NBRC CSE experience so that you can become more comfortable with the computer testing format, focus more on what is best for the patient and less on how the computer works. Branching logic format for the clinical simulations is similar to the testing feature used on the NBRC CSE, presenting a logical progression and creating a "cause and effect" style of learning. High-quality lung and heart sounds, radiographic images, waveforms, and other images provide realistic patient assessment data. NBRC-style multiple choice questions include rationales for both correct and incorrect answers to aid in content review and self-evaluation. Well-respected respiratory care author with vast experience in writing clinical simulations ensures that critical content is covered thoroughly and accurately. Examples of pathologic conditions, case studies and clinical simulations support key content found in any respiratory care program and support the NBRC CSE content outline.

The first edition of Simulation in Nursing Education: From Conceptualization to Evaluation altered the teaching and learning environment of nursing. The second edition is an essential resource for every nurse educator at every level of nursing education regardless of experience. Beginning with the basics, the book progresses through the theoretical framework and ethics of simulation, how to design simulation scenarios, curriculum integration of simulation, how to use guided reflection and debriefing, chapters on evaluation, collaboration, and integrating the QSEN competencies into simulations, and a final discussion which summarizes the issues and advances in simulation and considers the future of simulation in nursing education.
Clinical simulation is an innovative teaching/learning strategy that supports the efforts of educators to prepare students for practice. Despite the positive implications of clinical simulations in nursing education, no empirical evidence exists to inform effective teaching in simulated learning environments. The purpose of this research is to create an instrument to measure effective teaching strategies in clinical simulation contexts. The conceptual framework for this study is the Nursing Education Simulation Framework. The Student Perception of Effective Teaching in Clinical Simulation (SPETCS) is a survey instrument scored on a 5-point Likert scale with two response scales: Extent and Importance. The Extent response scale measures participants' perception of the extent to which the instructor used a particular teaching strategy during the simulation, and the Importance response scale measures perception of the degree of importance of the teaching strategy toward meeting simulation learning outcomes. A descriptive, quantitative, cross-sectional design was used. Evidence to support content validity was obtained via a panel of simulation experts (n = 7) which yielded a content validity index of .91. A convenience sample of undergraduate nursing students (n = 121) was used for psychometric analysis. Internal consistency reliability met hypothesized expectations for the Extent (α = .95) and Importance (α = .96) response scales. Temporal stability reliability results were mixed; correlations between administration times met expectations on the Importance scale (ICC = .67), but were lower than expected on the Extent scale (ICC = .52). Both response scales correlated within hypothesized parameters with two criterion instruments (p

Clinical simulations provide teachers with opportunities to enact professional knowledge, skills, and dispositions. Building on medical education’s longstanding use of standardized patients, this book infuses standardized individuals and clinical simulations into teacher education. As participating teachers engage with standardized parents, students, paraprofessionals, and community members, they encounter a variety of situations common to K12 teaching. This book provides teacher educators and professional development facilitators with the background knowledge, training procedures for standardized individuals, logistical steps, and all documents necessary for successful implementation of twelve different clinical simulations. This book is constructed for teacher educators and school district personnel who intend to facilitate clinical simulations for teachers. Teachers serving as participants in the clinical simulations should consult the separate text: Clinical Simulations for Teacher Development: A Companion Manual for Teachers.”

The Manual of Simulation in Healthcare, Second Edition is fully revised and updated. It is divided into three sections, beginning with a description of the logistics of establishing a simulation and skills centre and the inherent problems with funding, equipment, staffing, course development, and promotion. The following section details a broad array of considerations for healthcare-centred simulation within medical education and reviews the steps required to develop courses that comply with 'best practice' in medical education. The final section presents simulation scenarios applied to a range of medical scenarios. New material focussing on patient safety, interprofessional education and critical care medicine represent current practice and a revised glossary of terms, acronyms, and abbreviations encountered in the areas of education, acute care medicine, simulation, and aviation has been included to enable the reader to better understand the language used by simulation experts. The Manual of Simulation in Healthcare, Second Edition provides an in-depth understanding of how medical educators can best incorporate simulation teaching methodologies into their curricula and is an invaluable resource to teachers across all the medical specialties.

This companion manual is designed for school leaders participating in clinical simulations. While it provides all necessary information to situate leaders in a simulated environment, it does not provide the additional materials necessary to successfully train standardized individuals, nor does it outline the broader logistical steps for implementing clinical simulations. School leader educators or representatives from school districts seeking to facilitate clinical simulations should consult the broader primary text: Beyond Tears, Tirades, and Tantrums: Clinical Simulations for School Leader Development.
