Abstract

Background:
Simulation is increasingly being used to train healthcare professionals however there is limited knowledge on how paediatric simulation is being used to train undergraduate nurses. This paper systematically scopes the literature on the types of undergraduate paediatric nursing simulations taking place, their value, the research methods used and areas of research focused on.

Methods:
A systematic scoping literature review, combined descriptive synthesis, and textual narrative synthesis was undertaken.

Results:
139 papers were identified by the search strategy. Of these, 32 papers were included for appraisal and synthesis. 17 papers were quantitative, five qualitative, and eight mixed-methods. The research took place in six different geographical locations. The total participant sample was 2,039. Papers were categorised according to their aims and objectives, and simulation types.

Conclusions:
This review revealed the heterogeneity of studies on this subject. Ultimately, studies were small and confined to single institutions or geographical locations. Studies that described or explored simulation as an intervention provided more interesting insights than those that evaluated or tested effectiveness. The variety of simulation types was wide and the fidelity of the simulations being described was frequently noted, however no reference was made as to how this was determined. Future studies would benefit from detailing the low, medium or high technological, psychological or environmental aspects of simulation
