 Simulated death: An innovative approach to teaching end-of-life care


 Clinical Simulation in Nursing, 5(6)



The authors are nurse educators at BryanLGH College of Health Sciences in Lincoln, Nebraska. They describe the development and experience of a 1-credit-hour theory elective titled Caring in Times of Death, Dying and Bereavement, which is offered to undergraduate nursing students at a Midwestern college. The simulation utilized was the Simulated Clinical Experience (SCE) End-of-Life Care from the Program for Nursing Curriculum Integration and was supported by evidence-based practice and research findings. Major themes identified in a debriefing after the simulated experience were: impact of family presence, value of realism (fidelity), and self-efficacy. Implication for future research included a qualitative study to address student nurses feelings when caring for the dying patient and a longitudinal study to determine whether the experience affected future practice.

The authors are experienced nurses that performed a study on the competency in providing end-of-life care by nursing students and practicing nurses. They explained that participation in simulated clinical experience enhances self-efficacy and competency levels of students’ more than experiential learning alone. They presented a sample curriculum module that contains a lesson objective, course outcome and simulated clinical experience outcome. The article also provided an approach on different dying states, their assessments and evaluations and appropriate response to various scenarios. Themes were identified in participant evaluations and they include impact of family presence, value of realism (fidelity) and self-efficacy of which were explored.
