Perioperative units are complex and high-risk environments in which teams of multidisciplinary health care professionals work collaboratively. Multidisciplinary simulation training is a form of education that allows perioperative teams to practise the non-technical and technical skills essential for managing emergency events within the perioperative environment. Despite the benefits of multidisciplinary simulation training, there is a paucity of literature about it; therefore, this study examined the experiences of Australian multidisciplinary perioperative team members who had undertaken simulation training.


Objectives: This study examined the experiences of Australian multidisciplinary perioperative team members who had undertaken multidisciplinary simulation training with the aim of:

  1. identifying the enablers of and/or barriers to multidisciplinary simulation training
  2. gaining insight into the frequency of training and types of scenarios used during simulation training
  3. exploring the potential changes to teamwork and communication following multidisciplinary simulation training.
