MAESTRE, José M. et al. Design and development of clinical simulation scenarios: analysis of courses for anesthesiologists. FEM (Ed. impresa) [online]. 2013, vol.16, n.1, pp.49-57. ISSN 2014-9840.

Introduction: Simulation is integrating into the residency programs and for continuing medical education (CME). The aim of this article is identify and standardize the best practices to design and develop clinical simulation scenarios for training exercises. Materials and methods: We analyze the courses for Anesthesia and Critical Care performed in Valdecilla Virtual Hospital from September 2008 to June 2011. Results: A total of 104 scenarios were reviewed, related to 14 CME and 13 resident courses. The resultant phases followed to design, build and refine a clinical simulation scenario, and the criteria utilized to make the decisions in each step are presented. Conclusions: In our opinion clearly define the training objectives is the most important single factor to guide the scenario design and determine a meaningful simulation experience.
