Development of a Simulation Practicum Module using a High-fidelity Simulator: Focusing on Team Based ECCA


Objectives: The study aimed at developing and operating the simulation practicum module for team-based emergency care for cardiac arrest patients, and looking into its effectiveness. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The study subjects were 54 senior nursing students in college B who completed theoretical coursework and clinical training associated with cardiovascular care. For the simulation practicum, we utilized high-fidelity simulator (SimMan3G) and debriefing system. Findings: The simulation practicum module for emergency care for cardiac arrest patients was operated in accordance with the development plan, and the preliminary knowledge for the team-based emergency care for cardiac arrest patients was 23.1 points on average, and the score of practice assessment on average was 48.2 points, which were verified as effective. There was no correlation in the evaluation between preliminary knowledge and practice assessment. The study for the development of simulation practicum module carries significance in that it helps for students to adapt quickly to nursing service after graduation, executing the practice simulation for emergency care at the time of the environmental change of clinical practice. Improvements/Applications: it is necessary to further develop scenarios by learning concept and in addition, the effectiveness of verification in team-based simulation practice in various aspects.
