Simulation-based interprofessional education is beneficial, but it is not clear whether the nature of the simulation has any impact. A pretest and posttest study was conducted among nursing (n = 131) and paramedic (n = 58) students participating in mass casualty incident (MCI) simulations versus handoff communication simulations. Nursing students had better attitudes toward interprofessional education, as well as higher levels of satisfaction and self-confidence, after handoff communication simulations in comparison with MCI simulations.
