Å skape handlingsrom for pasientsikkerhet i sykehjem. Sykepleieres erfaringer med å delta i simulering in situ på sykehjem
Some patients in nursing homes require extra attention to enable staff to detect and manage deterioration at an early stage. Nursing skills are vital to make systematic observations and assessments of a patient’s condition. It is challenging for nurses in nursing homes to make professional decisions without being able to consult other nurses. To improve the quality and safety of health care for patients and their relatives, the focus must be on working to ensure patient safety in nursing homes. Simulation-based learning can be one way to increase reflection on patient safety and develop health professionals’ knowledge, skills and attitudes, while protecting patients from unnecessary risks. Simulation-based learning as a method in medical education offers activities that mimic a clinical environment, where students can practice procedures and decision-making and where their critical thinking can be enhanced through role-play, videos or simulators. While simulation often takes place in a simulation center, in situ simulation refers to a learning activity that takes place in participants’ everyday work environment where they actually provide patient care. In this chapter, we aim to describe nurses’ experiences of in situ simulation and their subsequent reflections on patient safety in nursing homes. Data were collected from two focus groups with 5–6 nurses per group. The transcribed material was analyzed using qualitative content analysis, and two categories were identified that described the nurses’ experiences: “to doubt oneself” and “being dependent on others”.
