Description

Abstract

Background: Communication has been identified as one of the top root causes for sentinel events in the healthcare field. Simulation education is a beneficial option for improving skills and competency in communication for staff nurses.

Objectives: To examine current research on communication education in simulation, specifically in staff nurses, and highlight its benefits to lead to better patient outcomes which should lead to the increase use of simulation.

Method: A literature review was conducted using the databases of CINAHL, PubMed, and PsycInfo; only using articles published from 2007 to present. The key words used in this review were a combination of: simulation, models anatomic, manikins, mannequins, high fidelity, standardized patient, communication skills nursing, nurses, inter-professional, interprofessional, interdisciplinary, and inter-disciplinary.

Results: Four major benefits were identified in this literature review. These benefits include high knowledge retention over time, enhanced self-confidence, increased satisfaction, and a dynamic form of education.

Conclusion: The findings suggests the use of simulation education for interprofessional communication. The results show efficacy in teaching and learning different key points of communication. Positive reviews from the participants are associated with interests in further education. Further studies may be warranted since the participant pool may be biased towards a particular group of nurses. Also, studies comparing traditional didactic education versus simulation education can determine pros and cons of both.

Benefits of Interprofessional Communication in Simulation Education for Staff Nurses: An Integrative Literature Review
