Abstract

Practice educators and mentors are now expected to have the skills and techniques needed to implement a ‘learning skills through simulation’ program into established curricula, yet using simulation to teach while of huge importance – requires careful and time-consuming planning. This valuable resource takes away some of that burden by providing clear, ready-made activities and guidance from leading practitioners in a range of fields, which healthcare and practice educators and mentors can use to enhance their teaching of all the essential and commonly-taught clinical and management skills and knowledge. Dedicated chapters, which all follow a defined step-by-step format, provide simulation scenarios, alongside facilitator guidance, which will help develop confidence in the teaching of key skills such as: Drug administration; Conflict management; Infection control; Breaking bad news; Catheter and bowel care These scenarios and accompanying guidance can be used as a framework for teaching, promoting a greater understanding of the skill being taught, and providing a risk-free opportunity for the student to practice their clinical and managerial skills and judgment. © 2012 SAGE Publications Inc.
