Article:

 The use of hi fidelity simulation to enhance nursing students' therapeutic communication skills

Publication:

 International Journal of Nursing Education Scholarship, 5(1), Article 43

Annotation:

  Students report anxiety and lack of confidence in their own communication skills prior to psychiatric clinical experiences. The researchers designed a response driven algorithm recorded and implanted in a SimMan scenario. Instructors had a male SimMan respond to a student's questioning about depression and suicidal ideation based on instruction provided by their textbooks and didactic classroom instruction. The scenario was tested with psychiatric faculty and two students. The evaluation tool used for the tool is included in the article. Advantages- faculty unfamiliar with psychiatric content could run the simulation. Disadvantages- only one student at a time could participate in the scenario. Recommendations included investigating if students learn/improve communications skills if they observed a peer going through the simulation.
