Abstract

Background: Healthcare simulation training has rapidly become a powerful learning tool for medical education. Our project introduced a regular stroke thrombolysis simulation course available to any staff member involved in stroke care, utilising post-stroke patients with varying neurology. Methods: We conducted 6 stroke thrombolysis simulation courses over 6 months. Candidates completed self-assessment pre-and post-course questionnaires. Scores were compared using Wilcoxon paired rank tests. Results: 38 healthcare professionals participated during the study period (Table 1). Tables 2 & 3 outline results comparing pre- and post-assessment scores. All results are presented as medians. Conclusion: To our knowledge this is the first simulation course that involves real post stroke patients. It has demonstrated clear benefits to candidate’s confidence and clinical skills in addition to the requirement of NIHSS certification.
