Assess vital signs and patient‚Äôs symptoms/concerns
Carry out appropriate interventions in response to assessment findings
Identify assessment findings which could lead to complications
Identify and consult appropriate resources while assessing, planning (including prior to lab), and implementing care.
Respond appropriately to family member question(s)
Participate in creating SBAR report at the end of the simulation
Simulation Modality:Manikin-based, Standardized/simulated patients or real patients
Patient actor or high fidelity manikin
Scenario was first developed in 2007 and was peer reviewed and pilot tested prior to curriculum integration. Scenario was internally and externally peer reviewed in 2014 and updated with new references.
