'This book provides an essential resource for educators of clinical skills who want to utilise simulation based education to provide optimal learning opportunities for their students.'
Andrew Bland, University of Huddersfield
'In this book, a team of experienced authors have put together a much needed text that takes an evidence-based, practical approach to skills development.'
Lauren Mawson, University of Cumbria
'A really exciting new text.'
Sarah Burden, Leeds Metropolitan University
This is more aimed at general skills .
Found this to be useful when planning simulation activities for students. Is probably more suited to lecturers as gives some
excellent in supporting staff to develop knowledge and skills in implementing simulation into course programmes.
Very useful text and we will be reccomending this text
An introductory guide to teaching clinical skills in the health professions. Potentially a useful resource for new academics and practice educators charged with designing learning experiences centred on the core skills of healthcare professionals.
Text clearly demonstrates a broad range of key skills with evidence and rationale to support. It also incorporates useful guidance on how to teach the skill. I have put this as supplemental as the focus is adult rather than paediatrics which would be more relevant to my modules although most of the sections are easily transferable.
We currently run simulations on each day of our skills modules so it is always useful to compare our teaching to others. This text provided some helpful ideas for us to continue to build on in our scenarios. Although not aimed at paediatrics we have adapted some sections for our own use. The text will be used as a resouorce for lecturers rather than students.
An exceptional book for teachers
I liked the chapters of this book and feel that it covers some dynamic areas of simulation which would be useful.
It would be of most valuable to lecturers who are responsible for teaching simulation this is the reason i have not recommended it to my students. I however will be using it frequently as i teach skills on a regular basis.
There is growing interest in simulation in nursing education and this text clarified a number of the key issues underpinning it as well as offering examples of how it may be used.
This is an excellent textbook. I am very familiar with the use of simulation as a learning tool but have found that this book is supportive of how I am developing my practice in the field. I feel that the lay out is very useful and I did particularly like the system based approach for some of the chapters. Although the book is based in the adult domain of nursing it is easily transferable to all other areas of nursing and is supportive of the educator in practice. I also found the chapter on conflict excellent.
I felt this was suitable for tutors only.
