*New* Healthcare Simulation Research Journal Listings Page!

Today we are launching a new Healthcare Simulation Research Journal Listings Page! These medical simulation journals have paved the way for academic exploration, understanding, and evolution of the modern day methodology with numerous unique moving parts including: scenario development, debriefing, facilitation, technology, operations, learning theories, and more. In this article we list some of the top clinical simulation research journal publications and their three latest research articles, but there are more to be found on our new page linked above and below!

British Medical Journal of Simulation & Technology Enhanced Learning, Affiliated with the Association For Simulated Practice in Healthcare

The BMJ Simulation & Technology Enhanced Learning (STEL) Journal focuses on the use of simulation and innovative technology as an educational method or intervention for professionals in all areas of health and social care education, workforce development and quality of care. The journal seeks to contribute to research, innovation and knowledge translation for practitioners, teachers, students and leaders in all health and social care professions who wish to improve clinical outcomes, patient experience, and safety utilizing simulation in healthcare. This includes scholarly activity undertaken in conjunction with colleagues from diverse disciplines spanning psychology, sociology, anthropology, safety science, engineering, information technology, art and design, linguistics and more.

Clinical Simulation in Nursing, Official Journal of the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL)

Clinical Simulation in Nursing is an international, peer reviewed journal published online monthly that is the official journal of the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation & Learning (INACSL) organization, which focuses on nursing simulation. Clinical Simulation in Nursing has a 2015 Impact Factor of 1.360, ranking favorably in the Nursing category. INACSL’s mission is to advance the science of healthcare simulation. INACSL has operationalized its mission by developing the first standards for simulation practice, INACSL Standards of Best Practice: Simulation, Published in the Clinical Simulation in Nursing, INACSL’s monthly, electronic research journal, these freely accessible articles provide the industry with guidelines for creating and executing healthcare simulations.

The Leadership of INACSL is deeply committed to meeting the needs of its membership. They thoughtfully examine all opportunities and options to ensure that all decisions benefit the members as well as align with the Mission and Vision of the organization. The Editor-in-Chief is Nicole Harder PhD, RN from the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada. Access to abstracts is complimentary. Access to full text is limited to subscribers and members.

Three Latest Articles:

  • Enhancing Health Care Personnel’s Response to ER Violence Using Situational Simulation

Simulation in Healthcare, Official Journal for the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSIH)

Simulation in Healthcare: The Journal of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare is a multidisciplinary publication encompassing all areas of applications and research in healthcare simulation technology. The journal is relevant to a broad range of clinical and biomedical specialties, and publishes original basic, clinical, and translational research on these topics and more:

  • Safety and quality-oriented training programs
  • Development of educational and competency assessment standards
  • Reports of experience in the use of simulation technology
  • Virtual reality
  • Epidemiologic modeling
  • Molecular, pharmacologic, and disease modeling

The Editor-in-Chief is Mark W. Scerbo PhD, from the Department of Psychology at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia.

Three Latest Articles:

International Pediatric Simulation Society’s (IPSS) Cureus Channel

Articles published on the IPSS Cureus Channel are indexed in PubMed Central(PMC), the free full-text archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature at the U.S. National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine (NIH/NLM). The International Pediatric Simulation Society (IPSS) is dedicated entirely to pediatric, perinatal, and associated health care providers and organizations utilizing simulation-based education to improve care and safety for children. Supported by IPSS, INSPIRE and the Academic Pediatric Association. The channel is a resource provided by the Society to its members to provide editorial support prior to the manuscript going to the journal’s editors and on to the peer review process. The intent is to help researchers in pediatric simulation to get their work published, and as a way for IPSS members to get a feel for being a reviewer in the peer review process.

Three Latest Articles:

  • Publication Activity and Impact of the International Pediatric Simulation Society Cureus Channel: 2014 to 2018
  • A Real Human Umbilical Cord Simulator Model for Emergency Umbilical Venous Catheter Placement Training
  • Evaluation of a Modified Objective Structured Assessment of Technical Skills Tool for the Assessment of Pediatric Laceration Repair Performance
