Sustaining global partnerships for simulation integration: lessons from the field

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Aim: A reciprocal partnership between two World Health Organization Collaborating Centers in the Americas region aimed to strengthen nursing and midwifery education through innovative integration of high-fidelity simulation. Methods/Implementation: Immersion of a visiting scholar in six-week training within a North American nursing school (host) solidified simulation champion designation, upon return at the home institution. Next, two expert nursing faculty implemented a train-the-trainer simulation course on-site. Following evaluation and virtual debriefing, a midwifery faculty visited the host institution for second-round training. Conclusion: This ongoing program targets faculty development needs through a strong academic partnership, built upon global awareness and sustainable engagement.
