The purpose of this project is to develop and test a model that can be used to compare different types of simulation learning for military and civilian nursing trauma skills. The model will enable measurement and comparison of changes in knowledge, skills and attitudes of the learner, as well as overall cost effectiveness for each type of simulation PC screen based vs. high fidelity simulation. The final model will be useful for evaluation of simulation learning for many other military and civilian nursing and other types of healthcare providers clinical skills. This is completion of the second year of the project all three of the PC screen based and high fidelity simulation scenarios, lesson plans, detailed training tasks, evaluation model including the pre and post assessments, and cost assessment model have been developed. The Phase II IRB has been approved, but the Clinical Investigations Regulatory Office CIRO must still approve the Cooperative Research and Development Agreement CRADA before testing of the model that was developed can begin on human subjects. There are no research findings to report at this time as we have not yet tested the model that was developed, however one poster presentation about the project was made.
