This simulation focuses on stroke management. The patient is a 65 y/o female who was admitted to the medical unit from the nursing home with pneumonia (accompainied by delirium and dehydration) for IV antibiotics therapy 8 days ago. The patient also suffers from comorbidity and is taking multiple medications to treat them. The learners will take on the nursing role to conduct a comprehensive neurological examination for the patient, as well as establish priorities of nursing and collaborative care to better treat her.
Conduct a comprehensive neurological examination for a patient who is experiencing a stroke to determine the priority intervention. Establish priorities of nursing and collaborative care for a patient who is experiencing a stroke to prevent further deterioration of the patient’s health status. Reflect on communication strategies for a patient experiencing a stroke to promote therapeutic communication. Demonstrate leadership at the point of care to facilitate evidence-based stroke management
Simulation Modality:Virtual gaming simulation / virtual patient
This simulation’s scenario and script were formally peer-reviewed by two external institutions, then the final simulation was pilot tested by several students on a student testing committee then as part of the Virtu-WIL Student Program’s rollout.
