Traditional Poster Round
Background: Simulation-based education (SBE) is considered one of the most effective learning instrauctional design. Interprofessional education (IPE) from the other side is the best teaching for improving the patient care in a collaborative practice. Pediatric dialysis requires extensive training and team work effective management. There is limited data about the specialized pediatric dialysis training through interprofessional simulation.
Objectives: The aim of this work is to demonstrate the effectiveness of SBE in pediatric dialysis training not only through machine demonstration and troubleshooting but through intensive IPE simulation scenarios.
Methods: The author designed an integrated dialysis simulation training program for both pediatric and adult dialysis including both peritoneal dialysis (PD) and hemodialysis (HD). He targeted all the health professionals involved in the dialysis treatment. The first session was for dialysis indication and prescription (case-based group work) and the second for dialysis complications (Manikin-based team work). Three different simulation scenarios were used in each session. Four parallel rooms ran the scenarios in the same time, two for adults (HD &PD) and two for pediatrics (HD &PD). Each room ran initially prescription scenario and then complication scenarios. Each room was facilitated by two instructors (Subject matter expert) and one simulation specialist.
Results: The result is still in the analysis phases but the primary general data are very encouringing and in favour of implementing and dissiminating this simulation program.
Conclusion: The author will present the final results and conclusion in the conference soon and prepare the final publication.
