Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Practical performance in carrying out dressing procedure [ Time Frame: 1 day, immediately after the training simulator ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The practical performance in carrying out dressing procedure of each student was analyzed according to a list of 28 steps of procedure, including the preparation of environment and material, antisepsis, curative application and recording (score: 0 to 35). The list of items used to analyze the steps of the catheter dressing procedure were face and content validated by five experts working in the oncology field.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Auto-instructional guide
The subjects performed the procedure on a manikin simulator, with the aid of an auto-instructional guide, lasting one hour.
Other: Auto-instructional guide
After attending a lecture and a video on the dressing of the tunneled central venous catheter, the subjects performed the procedure on a manikin simulator, with the aid of an auto-instructional guide, lasting one hour.
Experimental: Preceptorship
The subjects performed the procedure on a manikin simulator, with the aid of a nurse preceptorship, lasting one hour.
Other: Preceptorship
After attending a lecture and a video on the dressing of the tunneled central venous catheter, the subjects performed the procedure on a manikin simulator, with the aid of a nurse preceptorship, lasting one hour.

Detailed Description:

The simulation facilitates the acquisition of knowledge, skills and decision-making required for clinical practice. Mentoring has been employed and valued as pedagogical process qualifier.

The hypothesis of this study was that students who trained with the assistance of a preceptorship had better practical performance when compared to students who used an auto-instructional guide.
