Recognising paediatric deterioration in a simulated environment

O'Leary, Jessica A. (2015) Recognising paediatric deterioration in a simulated environment. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis examined the impact of high fidelity patient simulation on paediatric critical care nurses' self-efficacy and knowledge for recognising and responding to paediatric deterioration. This research highlights the positive effect simulation education can have on nursing learning outcomes which may influence patient safety through the timely recognition and management of the deteriorating child.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
