This IPE program for nurses, residents, pharmacists and respiratory therapists was developed to increase competence and confidence with pediatric resuscitation. Following in situ simulation using medium fidelity manikins and direct observation by a physician and nurse instructor who participated in debriefing, residents reported increased confidence and nurses reported increased self-efficacy. Challenges to implementation and areas for future improvement are described. A sample scenario and checklist is included. Measurement of teamwork in addition to confidence and competence is recommended.
