Multidisciplinary simulation training for Australian perioperative teams: A qualitative descriptive exploratory study
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:
- identifying the enablers of and/or barriers to multidisciplinary simulation training
- gaining insight into the frequency of training and types of scenarios used during simulation training
- exploring the potential changes to teamwork and communication following multidisciplinary simulation training.
