LEON, Casandra G. R. M. Ponce de et al. Development and validation of clinical cases to be used in maternal-child nursing education. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2018, vol.serIV, n.18, pp.51-62. ISSN 0874-0283.

Background: As an active teaching method, simulation allows improving cognitive and rational skills, critical judgment, teamwork, task division, and leadership. Objective: To describe the development of 2 clinical cases and validate them to be used in high-fidelity maternal-child simulation. Methodology: A two-phase methodological validation study was conducted. The first phase consisted of the identification of the school’s health care needs and the development of 2 clinical cases to be used in high-fidelity maternal-child simulation. The second phase consisted of the validation of the cases and instruments for assessment of simulation in the training process. Results: The experts assessed the items using the Content Validity Index (CVI). The suggestions aimed at improving the scenario assessment tools and contributed to the reliability of the developed clinical cases. Conclusion: The validation of the scenarios by the experts reflected the adequacy of the items in the instruments and promoted another implementation of the cases designed for high-fidelity maternal-child simulation.
