'This book provides an essential resource for educators of clinical skills who want to utilise simulation based education to provide optimal learning opportunities for their students.'

'In this book, a team of experienced authors have put together a much needed text that takes an evidence-based, practical approach to skills development.'

'A really exciting new text.'
Sarah Burden, Leeds Metropolitan University

Practice educators and mentors are now expected to have the skills and techniques needed to implement a 'learning skills through simulation' programme into established curricula, yet using simulation to teach - while of huge importance - requires careful and time-consuming planning. This valuable resource takes away some of that burden by providing clear, ready-made activities and guidance from leading practitioners in a range of fields, which healthcare and practice educators and mentors can use to enhance their teaching of all the essential and commonly-taught clinical and management skills and knowledge.

Dedicated chapters, which all follow a defined step-by-step format, provide simulation scenarios, alongside facilitator guidance, which will help develop confidence in the teaching of key skills such as:

- Drug administration
- Conflict management
- Infection control
- Breaking bad news
- Catheter and bowel care

These scenarios and accompanying guidance can be used as a framework for teaching, promoting a greater understanding of the skill being taught, and providing a risk-free opportunity for the student to practice their clinical and managerial skills and judgement.
