Table 1 Summary of Simulated Scenarios

From: Applying interprofessional simulation to improve knowledge, attitude and practice in hospital- acquired infection control among health professionals

Simulated scenarios Objectives Mannequins/Models Specific infection control skills
Scenario 1:
Taking blood specimen
To evaluate the competency in taking blood specimen ▪ Human Mannequin
▪ Venipuncture practice arm training model
i.Donning and removing double gloves
ii.Disposing soiled swabs into clinical waste
iii.Handling sharps
Scenario 2:
Bedsore dressing.
To evaluate the competency in performing bed sore dressing ▪ Human Mannequin
▪ Wound care model
iv.Disposing soiled swabs, gauzes and dressing materials into clinical waste.
Scenario 3:
Collecting sputum for acid-fast bacilli
To evaluate the competency in collecting sputum for acid-fast bacilli ▪ Simulated patient i.Donning and removing N95 mask
Scenario 4:
Intermittent bladder catheterization
To evaluate the competency in performing Intermittent Bladder Drainage ▪ Human Mannequin
▪ Low-fidelity pelvic model
i.Disposing soiled swabs, gauzes and catheterization materials into clinical waste
  1. Four (4) interprofessional hospital-acquired infection control simulated scenarios (IPHAICSS) were chosen based on the expert panel’s recommendations and the feasibility of implementation including the availability of relevant mannequins and models for skills training. The IPSSHAICs’ were (i) taking blood specimen from vein (ii) bedsore dressing (iii) sputum for acid-fast bacilli collection for pulmonary tuberculosis (iv) intermittent bladder drainage insertion. COVID-19 pandemic has intensified awareness of the need for excellent infection control practices in general, including some of those in this program, such as hand washing, masking, and gloves
