Participant's evaluation of in situ simulation

Provider responses by locationAll (N=160)PICU (N=34)CICU (N=36)OR (N=26)Inpatient unit (N=64)
How valuable was this type of training in the clinical setting? (1=not valuable at all, 5=extremely valuable)4.34.44.63.94.4
How did performance of the simulation in the clinical setting impact you personally for the rest of the day?—(1=no impact, 5=major impact, I couldn't catch up the rest of the day)2.32.22.22.12.5
How did performance of the simulation in the clinical unit impact the unit for the rest of the day? (1=no impact, 5=major delays in patient care)2.12.22.31.62.3
How did the realism of doing this in the clinical unit compare to doing it in the simulation lab (at MERC)? (1=not realistic at all, 5=very realistic)3.13.83.92.84.0
The length of time for this date's simulation was: (1=too short, 3=too long)2.02.12.12.02.1
  • Note: N in this table is the number of providers who anonymously filled out the survey instrument, not the total number trained (see table 1 for numbers trained).

  • CICU, cardiac intensive care unit; OR, operating room; PICU, paediatric intensive care unit.
