Amalgamation of the two Strategies
Given the rapidly changing patient population and the increased complexity in health care, it is important to recognize the value of IPE and simulation, and aim to integrate the two strategies as we train future health professionals. This has been referred to in the literature as interprofessional simulation-based education or simulation-enhanced interprofessional education (sim-IPE), and is getting increased attention from accrediting bodies, health professional schools and educators. Sim-IPE is still in its early stages of development and its impact on patient outcomes has not been yet evaluated. Nevertheless, its adoption seems to have promising results to the training of future health professionals.
In 2011, the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL) published nine standards for the development and practice of clinical simulation as a teaching strategy. These standards are well received by health care and academic institutions and have been adopted by many when implementing simulation-based learning. In 2013, Clinical Simulation in Nursing issued a supplement that included the first revision to the seven standards of simulation and the addition of supporting guidelines for each standard. In June 2015, the eight standard was published and it was centered on sim-IPE. Decker et al. (2015) state that “sim-IPE occurs when participants and facilitators from two or more professions are engaged in a
