qThis book could easily become the qgo toq text for standardized patient utilization and the backbone for implementation strategies in learning programs...It is a must-have for all disciplines interested in adding the human simulation experience to their programs.q--Nursing Education Perspectives qToday there is an explosion in the use of simulation in nursing and health professions education. The contributors to this text are experts in this format of teaching. They are the designers of the learning spaces, the authors of simulation cases and evaluation methods, the experts who program the human patient simulators and who teach the patient actors to enact the clinical scenariosA–I consider this a qhandbookq on the design, evaluation and practice of simulation for clinical education. If you are a faculty member with concerns about how your students will make the transition from student to professional, use simulation in your curriculum and learn for yourself that pretending is simulation for life but simulation is pretending for the delivery of exquisite clinical care.q Gloria F. Donnelly, PhD, RN, FAAN Dean and Professor Drexel University College of Nursing and Health Professions Human simulation is changing the face of clinical education in the health professions. Its use has expanded beyond medical school to encompass nursing and mental health clinical education. This comprehensive guide to establishing and managing a human simulation lab has been written by nationally acclaimed simulation experts and is geared for undergraduate, graduate, and professional settings. The text takes the reader step-by-step through the process of planning, organizing, implementing, and maintaining a simulation lab. It describes the required technology, how to train standardized patients, how to implement a simulation, evaluation and analysis of the simulation experience, and how to develop a business plan. The guide details simulation in undergraduate and graduate nursing programs, physician's assistant programs, and mental health education, as well as the use of simulation with critically ill patients, and in perioperative, perianasthesia, women's health, and rehabilitation science settings. Key Features: Offers a blueprint for developing, implementing, and managing a human simulation lab Details use of simulation in numerous nursing and mental health settings along with case studies Provides tools for evaluation and analysis of the simulation experience Presents undergraduate and graduate nursing simulation scenarios and pedagogical strategies Discusses simulation training and required technology Includes templates for writing cases for BSN and MSN levelsAn example of some self-assessment questions are as follows: The SOAP note: Teachers find they get a good perspective on a studenta#39;s progress through a traditional subjective/objective/ assessment/plan (SOAP) medical note.
