Abstract

Objectives: Simulation-based learning has been extensively explored, especially in baccalaureate nursing programmes. Recently, simulation-based learning has been introduced in perioperative nursing. The aim of this scoping review is to investigate work published on the use of simulation-based learning in the field of perioperative nursing. Design and data sources: A scoping review was conducted using the methodological framework of Arksey and O'Malley to identify a broad range of relevant literature, regardless of study design. A comprehensive and systematic search was performed using Medline, CINAHL, Eric, Svemed+, PsychINFO and Embase in May 2016 and then was updated in February 2018. Each database was searched for literature published between 1st January 2005 and 8th February 2018. Review method: Two authors independently assessed literature eligibility and extracted data to answer our research question ‘What is known about the use of simulation-based learning in the field of perioperative nursing?’ Results: Nine articles and one doctoral thesis were included in the review. There appears to be a paucity of research or results-oriented evidence regarding the use of simulation-based learning in the field of perioperative nursing. Different goals of simulation-based learning were reported. It was difficult to confirm whether these goals had been reached as none of the articles included control groups, and no evaluations had been undertaken against Kirkpatrick's level 3 to see changes in participants' behaviours, and level 4, to determine whether the training had a positive impact on, for example, patient outcomes. Conclusion: Owing to the lack of research and the inadequate descriptions of design and method in simulation-based learning in most of the articles included, there is little evidence in the existing literature to guide practitioners of this learning in the field of perioperative nursing. This indicates a need for further research in this area.
