Ojha R, Liu A, Rai D, Nanan R - Front Pediatr (2015)

Bottom Line: Simulation is one model that has gained significant attention in the last decade and has been widely adopted as a training and assessment tool in medical education.Recent literature demonstrates increased retention of knowledge and skills after simulation-based training.Further research is required to improve current simulation curriculums, develop validated assessment tools, and to demonstrate improved clinical outcomes after simulation-based training.

ABSTRACT
Recent changes in medical education have highlighted the importance of experiential learning. Simulation is one model that has gained significant attention in the last decade and has been widely adopted as a training and assessment tool in medical education. Pediatric simulation has been utilized to teach various skills including resuscitation and trauma management, procedural skills, and team training. It is also a valuable tool for health care educators, as it allows learners to achieve competence without putting patients at risk. Recent literature demonstrates increased retention of knowledge and skills after simulation-based training. Further research is required to improve current simulation curriculums, develop validated assessment tools, and to demonstrate improved clinical outcomes after simulation-based training. We conducted an online search of original and review articles related to simulation and pediatric medical education and provide an overview of the role and utility of simulation in pediatrics. Key PointsSimulation in pediatrics has been widely accepted and adapted as a training and assessment tool in medical education.Simulation in pediatrics has been utilized to teach various skills including resuscitation and trauma management, procedural skills, and team training.Further research is required to improve current simulation curriculums, to develop validated assessment tools, and to demonstrate improved clinical outcomes after simulation-based training.

Mentions: References from relevant articles were then explored, and appropriate citations were also reviewed and included. Each abstract was initially read by two reviewers to identify whether the article was likely to fulfill the inclusion criteria. The titles that had no relevance to the review (basic science and animal models) were excluded from the review. A total of 146 articles were included in this review. The process for selection of articles for review is shown in a flow diagram (Figure 1).
