Abstract

Course Overview: Dilemmas often occur in simulation research. This session will cover common dilemmas that occur while conducting research in four different phases: Planning, Developing, Implementing, and Evaluating. Sample issues covered will include: funding, sampling and randomization concerns, measuring objectives, simulation validity, checklist development, inter-rater reliability, debriefing, multi-center studies, off-site coordinator management, and dissemination dilemmas. Panel members’ true life experiences, solutions, and resolutions will be shared to help you avoid "getting in a pickle.”

Learning Objectives:

1. Explain three dilemmas that may occur during simulation research.

2. Formulate a personal plan to avoid potential dilemmas in your own simulation research.

3. Examine at least two solutions to common problems found during simulation research.
