Simulation in Health Education

Summary

The use of simulation in nursing education attempts to replicate the essential aspects of a clinical situation with the outcome focused on the ability of nursing staff to understand and manage similar situations in clinical settings. In recent years there appears to be a trend towards increased use of patient simulation in both undergraduate and graduate education curricula. The reasons for these may include, limited clinical placement positions, greater acceptance of simulation as a useful adjunct to clinical teaching and the potential for simulation to improve clinical learning. In recent research we have reported increased self efficacy following emergency response training using immersive simulation. The focus of future research is on the use of debriefing following immersive training and the potential benefits of assertiveness training using high fidelity immersive simulation.
