The authors of this review manual have captured all of the elements of simulation from establishing the objectives of simulated learning experiences, to constructing scenarios, to debriefing students and the simulation team, to assessing and evaluating the learning that has accrued
They have also described the range of simulation options and the contexts for their most effective use.;Gloria F. Donnelly, PhD, RN, FAAN, FCPP, Dean and ProfessorCollege of Nursing and Health Professions, Drexel University Health professionals embarking on a career teaching simulation are embracing a world of innovation in which both teacher and student can develop their healthcare skills more rapidly and promote better patient outcomes. This is the first practice manual to assist healthcare simulation educators in the United States and internationally in preparing for certification in this rapidly emerging field. The authors, noted experts in simulation and education, have carefully analyzed the CHSE blueprint to ascertain what material is most likely to be covered. They present this information in a user-friendly, pithy outline format.This review manual provides numerous features that help students to critically analyze test content, including end-of-chapter review questions, test-taking strategies, and a comprehensive practice test with answers and rationales. It features current evidence-based teaching practices and incorporates case studies to connect simulation situations to simulation education with healthcare students and includes information about advanced certification and recertification.KEY FEATURES:Comprises the first review book for the CHSE examFollows the CHSE test blueprintFosters optimal learning and retention through use of a pithy outline formatProvides Teaching Tips feature for best simulation practiceIncludes Evidence-Based Simulation Practice boxes that focus on current researchIncorporates case studies, 230 test questions, end-of-chapter practice questions, and test-taking strategiesThe Certified Healthcare Simulation Educator and CHSE marks are trademarks of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare.This manual is an independent publication and is not endorsed, sponsored, or otherwise approved by the Society.
