New Book: Interprofessional Simulation in Health Care: Materiality, Embodiment, Interaction

Hot off the heels of another Springer Published Clinical Simulation Latest work “Comprehensive Healthcare Simulation: Operations, Technology, and Innovative Practice“, comes yet another powerful read: “Interprofessional Simulation in Health Care: Materiality, Embodiment, Interaction” by Abrandt Dahlgren, Madeleine (Editor), Hans Rystedt (Editor), Li Felländer-Tsai (Editor), Sofia Nyström (Editor), albeit under the Series Title “Professional and Practice-based Learning”.  Let’s take a closer look at this new Springer book!

Interprofessional Simulation in Health Care describes and discusses a practice-oriented approach to understanding and researching interprofessional simulation-based education and simulation. It provides empirical findings from research on this topic and is informed by practice-oriented perspectives. It identifies critical features of the simulation practice and discusses how these can be used in reforming simulation pedagogy.

The book is divided into three sections. Section 1 sets the scene for understanding the practices of interprofessional simulation-based education and simulation. It provides a theoretical and methodological framework for the conceptualization of practices and for the empirical studies on which the book is based. Section 2 revisits the dimensions of the simulation process/exercise, i.e. the briefing, simulation, and debriefing, and provides empirical analyses of how the practice of simulation unfolds. Based on these analyses, section 3 identifies and discusses how pedagogies for simulation can be reformed to meet the demands of future healthcare and research.

The opening chapter raises questions of why a book entitled “Learning together: Interprofessional learning in simulation in health care” is needed. Seen from a broad outlook, the world of health care practice is changing, comprising several challenges for health professionals. Health care services and professionals around the world are under pressure coping with limited resources, access to health care, and equity problems. At the same time, the demands to improve quality in practice and enhance patient safety are crucial. These conditions present knowledge and learning challenges and have implications for education and continuous development of health professionals. Interprofessional collaboration and teamwork has been emphasized as one of the means, but also, challenges in order to accomplish a sustainable and safe health care system, requiring a renewal of professional health care education.”

It continues reminding us that “the need for health care services will increase while the recruitment of qualified health care professionals is limited. Interprofessional collaborative skills are hence seen as necessary in health care in order to resolve the expected shortage of health care professionals and to ensure patient safety for the future.” And what better place to start then in our clinical simulation labs?
