High-fidelity simulation: validation and application of teaching-learning instruments to Brazil


The general objectives of this study are to: translate and validate to Brazil the version of the instruments Self-Confidence Scale, Educational Practices Questionnaire - Student Version, Simulation Design Scale - Student Version, Student Satisfaction and Self-Confidence in Learning and the Debriefing Experience Scale; to measure students' self-confidence and satisfaction, educational practice, simulation design and the debriefing technique among nursing students in care to patients in critical situation, undergoing high-fidelity simulated learning, through the validated instruments. Ethical guidelines will be followed and the study will be divided into 2 phases. Phase I - Cross sectional study of translation and validation of the instruments. Phase II - quasi-experimental study to be developed at the University of São Paulo at Ribeirão Preto College of Nursing (EERP-USP). Undergraduate nursing students, enrolled in the Bachelor's degree and Bachelor's and Teaching Diploma degree and who have already taken the clinical practice course, will be invited to participate in the research. Data collection will be carried out during the academic activities. In the Phase I, students will be asked to answer a questionnaire on socio-demographic characterization and the instruments. In the Phase II, students will participate in a workshop with formal content class, international videoconference and training in high-fidelity simulator. In sequence they will be invited to participate in the study, answering previously validated instruments. Statistical analyzes will be conducted in SAS. In order to measure the fidelity of the instrument, Cronbach's Alpha Coefficient, inter-items correlation, correlation of each item with the total and its influence on the value of alpha will be used for Internal Consistency. For analysis of the instruments, criteria established by the authors will be followed. (AU)
