Abstract

This pilot study appraised traditional versus remote facilitation via telesimulation for an established interprofessional training at two geographically separate sites. Participant feedback was captured via 5- point Likert scale surveys. Results demonstrate learners supported the use of remote facilitation: to meet the interprofessional learning objectives, as an adequate replacement for live facilitation and to implement simulation education in low-resource or low-facilitator areas. Improvements were suggested for audio connectivity between participants. In conclusion, the program evaluation suggests that telesimulation, with remote and traditional facilitation, is an effective strategy to provide interprofessional simulation education. Improvements identified are to standardize the set-up of audio/visual technology and tailor participant orientation to encourage meaningful dialogue between sites.
