Clinical Simulation Scenarios from Structured Competencies: How to Build Through Active Methodologies

Date: 16 Sep 2022, Friday | Time: 1120 - 1250 | Track Type: Main Conference Workshop | Format: Face-to-face | Venue: Seminar Room L2-S3 & L2-S4, Academia 

Speaker: Prof Elaine Cristina Carvalho Moura


The main outcome of simulation strategy is the development of professional competencies. Le Boterf (1993) define them as a combination of the full scope of Knowledge, Skills, and Attitude. Jeffries proposed five dimensions to planning simulation in nursing education and one of this is “scenario design”. The simulation scenario elaboration based in sequences involve the organisation of didactic activities predicting the order in which the activities are proposed; participants previous knowledge; the level of them, and the content complexity (Zabalza, 1998). 

Members of the Bay Area Simulation Collaborative (BASC) developed a template on the development of simulation scenarios for evidence-based clinical use. The challenge is then how to elaborate scenarios from structured competencies. This workshop will focus on learning about structured competencies and simulation strategy planning; discuss the experience of developing simulation scenarios using BASC perspective and use active methodologies to achieve those targets (integrated panel and textual maps) - all things working together to enhance your educational competencie.

Learning Outcome(s):

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Learn about professional competences in Le Boterf perspective.
  • Apply teaching-learning principles in the design of clinical simulation scenarios from structured competences.
  • Match integrated panel to support different topics of teaching-learning

Target Audience:

Healthcare educators who need to: plan clinical simulation scenarios; learn about structured competences and actives methodologies. Participants are expected to have basic knowledge of learning and teaching principles.
