Simulation-Based Education in Physical Therapist Professional Education: A Scoping Review.

Physical Therapy 2022 October 7
OBJECTIVES: The purposes of this study were to (1) describe and summarize the use of simulation-based education (SBE) with student physical therapists in the international literature and (2) describe the application and integration of standards of best practice (SOBP) for SBE reported in published physical therapy education research.

METHODS: Ovid MEDLINE, CINAHL, Web of Science, and ERIC databases were searched. The search included any study published that involved the use of SBE with student physical therapists. Because this was a scoping review, only descriptive statistics were compiled; no methodologic quality assessment was performed.

RESULTS: This scoping review revealed a significant increase in literature describing SBE with student physical therapists in the past 10 years. Simulation was used to address learning objectives across a variety of content areas and clinical settings. Communication skills were the most common objectives for simulation. Limited use of SOBP, published in 2016, was reported and use of author-generated outcome measures without validation was common.

CONCLUSIONS: Although there has been an increase in literature reporting the use of SBE with student physical therapists across many practice areas and settings, many articles reported limited use and integration of published SOBP and frequently utilized outcome measures that had not been validated.
