How will the use of high fidelity simulation in a North American paramedic curriculum contribute to high quality teaching and learning?
MetadataShow full item record
This study has examined an Advanced Care Paramedic (ACP) program, which mandates the use of high fidelity simulation (HFS). Intrinsic case study methodology has been utilized to collect and analyse qualitative and quantitative data. Data includes semi-structured interviews and demographic surveys of program instructors as well as an inventory artifacts used in HFS. Participants for the study believe that HFS allows students to gain proficiency, build self-confidence and ultimately increase patient safety. They also believe HFS must closely match the conditions in which students learn and work. These factors are encompassed in the theory of operational realities of the paramedic practice environment (ORPPE), which includes, safety, environmental, communication, and patient access. Participants also feel that additional training is required before they can feel comfortable conducting HFS exercises.
