Associated research grant:18/15642-1 - Investigating the impact of assessment strategies on medical students' learning, AP.JP
Associated scholarship(s):20/07132-3 - Using simulation training to implement the protocol for attending patient with a suspicion of COVID-19, BP.PD


Clinical simulation has a crucial role in updating and training new protocols. Because of the fast contamination of COVID-19, faculty development of the health professions who are responsible for attending patients with the suspicion of COVID-19. Thus, we created a simulation training to train all health professions who work at the teaching hospital of Unicamp. Although this training is crucial, it is also important to investigate whether this training is efficient in terms of knowledge and skill acquisition as well as the health professionals feel capable with enough autonomy, competence and relatedness. Aim: This study aims to investigate the efficiency of a simulation training of COVID-19 in terms of knowledge and skill acquisition as well as the health professionals feel capable with enough autonomy, competence and relatedness. Method: This is an observational field study that includes health professions of the teaching hospital of Unicamp who will accept of participating in this research. The health professionals will answer two questionnaires, before and after the simulation training. The first questionnaire contains 20 questions about the COVID-19 protocol. The second questionnaire consists of 14 questions about self-efficacy, which assess how capable a professional feel to perform a task, autonomy, competence and relatedness. (AU)
