Creating the CASN/CAE Healthcare "Top 10 Adult Nursing Situations for High Fidelity Simulation"
In cooperation with CAE Healthcare (the 'worldwide training partner of choice' in healthcare education solutions and simulation-based products and services), CASN formulated a list of ten top situations in adult nursing for simulation to highlight and emphasize the value of clinical training in the most complex clinical events, specific to the baccalaureate nursing program.
The list of situations (ranging from postoperative hemorrhage and multiple organ dysfunction syndrome, to heart failure, opioid overdose and end-of-life care), was assessed, refined, thoroughly reviewed and validated by a working group of experts from across Canada.
After much discussion, evaluation and judicious revision, the final list of ten situations was adopted in July 2018.
Existing CAE Healthcare clinical scenarios were selected by the working group. These simulation scenarios were then updated and adapted to the Canadian context with a view towards creating quality clinical learning resources that could be integrated within the top ten situations.
Lastly, the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning Standards (INASCL) of Best Practice: Simulation (2016) informed the review and revisions, which were initially carried out by the working group, with insightful guidance on design, facilitation, and debriefing of simulation experiences in nursing education.
Important elements of care that needed to be included in simulation also emerged (i.e., communication, unfolding scenarios, adverse event reporting, and interprofessional collaboration).
Following an in-depth review, the final CAE scenarios supporting the list was confirmed in January 2019 and incorporated within the top ten situations.
