Developing Simulations to Create Realism: Transition to Clinical Practice
This presentation will provide an overview of an essential component of simulation design: realism/fidelity. Different types of fidelity will be described along with a discussion on why this concept is important in developing and implementing your clinical-simulation scenarios. Evidence-based findings regarding reality will help to provide a better understanding and context to realism and the way nurse educators need to build, manage, and include this concept in clinical scenarios. Different types of activities and strategies on how to make your simulation scenarios more realistic will also be provided.
Following this session, participants will be able to:
- Define the types of realism
- Describe the importance of incorporating realism into your scenarios
- Discuss strategies to promote realism in the clinical scenarios.
