Simulation is a key component of nursing and healthcare training, and the knowledge base is continually increasing with research publications, conferences, online and social media resources. To aid knowledge translation, the nurse educator needs to embrace a global network of resources not just confined to local knowledge. To keep current on simulation focused research, here are some resources that may help (no conflict of interest to report). As ever please add any suggestions of other resources you know about in the comments section at the bottom of this post and I will update the below resource list.
This post supplements the recent Journals For The Nurse Educator To Follow and these journals will also include simulation research.
Simulation Focused Journals
Online & Social Media Resources
This post is more a reference to the growing evidence of SoMe in healthcare. New publications will be added as I discover them in the literature and please add any ones I may have missed in the comment section. All resources from this post have been created into a Social Media & Healthcare Google+ community, which you can also add relevant resources to as well and add valuable comments.
