Miller, J., Rambeck, J. and Snyder, A. (2014). Improving Emergency Preparedness System Readiness through Simulation and Interprofessional Education. Public Health Reports. 129(Suppl 4): 129–135.
The authors developed and tested a 10-hour simulation-focused interprofessional curriculum for health professions students to “(1) test the effectiveness of specific immersive simulations, (2) create reliable assessment tools for emergency response and team communication skills, and (3) assess participants' retention and transfer of skills over time.” They include details of the curriculum and evaluation methodology, as well as results of knowledge tests and qualitative evaluations, conducted immediately after the course, and again 6-12 months post-course.
