Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the use of high-fidelity simulation in health care education is an effective training and evaluation model.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Device: High-fidelity high-fidelity mannequin simulator (SimMan, Laerdal, Stavanger, Norway). Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
High-fidelity simulation has many advantages in medical education. Simulation-based critical care training is especially valuable due to error-prone work settings and the high cost of patient adverse events. This study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of implementing the high-fidelity simulation in critical care training, and the feasibility of high-fidelity simulation as an evaluation tool.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 500 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Prospective Study Focusing on Impact of High-fidelity Simulation in Health Care Education
Study Start Date : July 2007
Estimated Primary Completion Date : June 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date : June 2011

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: simulation group
the trainees in the simulation group receive simulation-based training
Device: High-fidelity high-fidelity mannequin simulator (SimMan, Laerdal, Stavanger, Norway).
Critical care training using high-fidelity simulation. The case scenarios were simulated by a high-fidelity mannequin simulator (SimMan, Laerdal, Stavanger, Norway).




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. performance of clinical reasoning and skills in simulated settings [ Time Frame: before and after the simulation-based training ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. clinical performance of reasoning and skills [ Time Frame: before and after the simulation-based training ]
