Using standards identified in the related literature, the partners will define a common structure to build their scenarios. Starting from problem situations identified by professionals (and students) in their hospital department, the partners will build simulation scenarios integrating the reliable EBN and EBM data.
The created scenarios have various objectives: to work directly on the field on an interesting situation,to work on specific skills in interprofessional communication and/or clinical judgement, to develop a permanent training system directly useful in contexts where problematic situations appear, to support hospital institutions in the dissemination of EBN and EBM data that improve practices...
Every partner (apart from INFOREF) will produce, with their students, five scenarios that will be tested during simulation sessions organised within the framework of classes and then used by healthcare professionals. After the simulation sessions, the scenarios will be validated using a grid developed by the consortium (O3).
INFOREF will give shape to the scenarios on paper support and post them on the e-learning platform. INFOREF will also implement on the plateform lthe online evaluation tools the participants will use to evaluate the intelluctual output.
Development of a simulation scenario validation grid
The partners will develop a common grid and procedure to validate the scenarios and to guarantee the relevance of the data they include (in terms of Evidence Based Nursing and Evidence Based Medecine) and the relevance of the scenario to meet the objectives of the educational system as well as professionals' expectations in terms of continuing training.
The validation criteria and their use will be described in the grid. The grid will be available to all partners on paper support and on the e-learning platform.
It will be largely disseminated to simulation centres and training institutions.
Simulation in healthcare to develop a partnership between learners and professionals in medical and paramedical training

Development of an observation grid for the learning skills achieved during simulation sessions
The partners will develop a common grid to observe and evaluate the learning skills acquired during simulation sessions.
It will evaluate the different aspects of the communication between professionals and learners (in an interdisciplinary way).
This grid, containing indicators for the learning skills possibly achieved in simulation session, will be available to all partners on paper and on the e-learning platform.
The grid can be inspired by the different levels targeted in the modifed Kirpatrick model (Evaluating and improving practices – Guide of good practices in healthcare simulation – HAS, December 2012) and will target at least the first two levels (reaction, knowledge and skills). Because of the short duration of the project, levels 3 and 4 (behaviours and results) will be approached in a more theoretical way and implemented depending on the possibilities left in the calendar.
The grid will be largely disseminated to initial and continuing training institutions.
Co-construction of healthcare protocols by training organisations (students, teachers) and healthcare professionals
Simulation in healthcare has become common practice in hospital and training institutions. However, some compartmentalisation has to be overcome. We can also note a lack in validated evaluation tools to assess the impact of simulation training on the acquisition of skills necessary for optimal care of patients.
SimuCarePro will develop training tools in the field of simulation in healthcare. It aims to optimise the skills of the nursing staff and therefore healthcare quality. Two approaches will be considered.
On the one hand, the project promotes cooperation between students and healthcare professionals. The actors will collaborate on developing simulation scenarios combining objectives of initial training and improvement of the field professionals’ practices. On the other hand, it investigates the development and validation of simulation scenarios as well as the evaluation of learning outcomes and their impact on practices.
