Experimental: Education on SBAR worksheet
Training in the use of the SBAR worksheet created to structure information exchange between healthcare professionals
Behavioral: Education on SBAR worksheet
The intervention group will receive one hour of training in teamwork skills, distribution of roles and use of the SBAR worksheet before participating in the simulated scenario using a human patient simulator (HPS).
No Intervention: No education on SBAR worksheet
The control group will participate in the simulation without any prior training in teamwork skills beyond those included in the undergraduate nursing degree curriculum, which the intervention group also received.
- To evaluate the use of the SBAR checklist as a means to help undergraduate nursing students identify their own role, understand the roles of other health professionals (assess skill level (KidSIM Team Performance Scale) [ Time Frame: During the 2-month data collection period, changes in skill level will be measured during the simulation scenario for each study arm, using an assessment scale (KidSIM Team Performance Scale) validated for this purpose. ]The study will use the KidSIM Team Performance Scale, designed and validated by Sigalet et al. for use in undergraduate nursing, medicine and physiotherapy degree programs. The KidSIM scale has 5 items about roles and 6 about communication.
- Evaluation of the SBAR instrument to improve patient assessment and intervention skills of undergraduate nursing students using human patient simulators (assess skill level using the Wolf scale) [ Time Frame: During the 2-month data collection period, changes in skill level will be measured during the simulation scenario for each study arm, using an assessment scale (Wolf) validated for this purpose). ]The Wolf scale was specifically designed to evaluate nontechnical skills (critical thinking and patient safety, communication, assessment, diagnosis and intervention).
