Simulation as Part of Discharge Teaching for Parents of Infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Raines, Deborah A.

MCN, American Journal of Maternal Child Nursing . 42(2):95-100, March/April 2017.

Parents watching the nurse caring for their baby, followed by return demonstrations are traditional methods of discharge teaching for parents of babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Simulation is widely used for enhancing learning of healthcare professionals, but little is known about simulation for family caregivers such as parents of a baby being discharged from the NICU. A program involving simulation as part of NICU parents' discharge teaching is presented.
