Metadata[+] Show full item record
Simulation has been used in healthcare and other industries for many years. Advances in technology have made simulation a feasible teaching/learning pedagogy for undergraduate nursing students. Healthcare delivery continues to evolve and patient care provided by a team of professionals has emerged as one of the best ways to positively impact patient outcomes. While simulation and interprofessional education research is established in multiple healthcare disciplines, their effects on patient outcomes has not been thoroughly studied. The simulation scenario for this research study was designed to replicate an acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and associated anxiety in a simulated patient. This study will add to the science of nursing by exploring the effects of interprofessional communication and teamwork on time to rescue a simulated patient.
