Nurses involved in maternity<br>nursingprovide care toexpectant and new mothers before, during and after child birth.Therefore, effective<br>nursing education plays a very important role in increasing the nurses’professional competencies and<br>improving the quality of care provided by them. However, the spread of COVID-19 in Japan and the<br>changing social conditions surrounding perinatal care have made it necessary to introduce simulation<br>education to improve clinical judgement skills. In this paper, we propose an instructional design for<br>effective simulation education for maternity nursing as an alternative to practical training in a clinical<br>setting. The design was developed based onMerrill’sfive principles of instruction.The high-fidelity<br>simulation task was constructed according tothecognitive load theory, controlling for three different<br>loads.We referred to Tanner’s clinical judgementmodel and discussed relevant references on ‘intuition’<br>or ‘tacit knowledge’ as a component of clinical reasoning patterns.We also discussed the importance of<br>‘intuition’ and debriefing on experiencesas per the Dreyfus model.Relevant papers were reviewed and<br>scales developed to assess simulation-based education.</p> 2021-07-23T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Effectiveness of Art Therapy on Level of Anxiety among Hospitalized School Age Children in a Selected Hospital at Kanyakumari District 2021-07-23T01:38:08-05:00 M.Maheswari A.
