Abstract

© 2021 Elsevier Ltd and International Society of Burns InjuriesObjective: This study aimed to evaluate the impact of interprofessional in situ simulations on the technical and non-technical skills of pediatric burn teams in acute burn management. Methods: This quasi-experimental study consisted of a one-group pre- and post-test design conducted in a pediatric burn center in Turkey. The sample consisted of nine interprofessional burn team members. Data collection tools consisted of the following: descriptive data form, burn technical skills checklists, simulation evaluation form, and Anesthesiologists' non-technical skills in Denmark rating form. Results: We found no statistically significant difference between the pre- and post-test scores for technical (p = 0.285) and non-technical skill (p = 0.180) scores. Burn team members evaluated the highest score in almost all criteria for in situ simulations. Conclusion: The interprofessional in situ simulations did not improve the burn teams’ acute burn management; however, according to a self-report, burn team members were satisfied with the interprofessional in situ simulation experiences and achieved their own gains.
