Book Contribution
Michael Pagano is a contributing author (with P. Greiner), "Health Communication". Book description: This second edition of an acclaimed book for nurse educators provides a practical, step-by-step guide to designing and developing simulation scenarios and integrating them into the nursing curriculum. Based on the findings of an extensive focus group that included contributing authors and new faculty, the text has been updated to include changes in simulation pedagogy since the first edition was published in 2008, and thoroughly reorganized to facilitate greater ease of use. An outstanding feature of the text is its provision of scenarios that are easily adaptable to the instructor's own lab. Additionally, these scenarios are ordered according to their complexity for quick access. The authors provide concrete information about the use of simulation in a variety of programs, courses, and schools and include real life scenarios of how nursing faculty have mastered the challenge of integrating simulation into their curriculums. The book provides recommendations on integrating point of care decision-making tools, necessary equipment, how to set up a lab (including static to high fidelity mannequins), scenario running instructions, and much more. The text also includes an enhanced eBook guide. -- Publisher description.
