Rev Bras Enferm. 2023 Dec 8;76Suppl 4(Suppl 4):e20210485. doi: 10.1590/0034-7167-2021-0485. eCollection 2023.


OBJECTIVE: to assess nursing students’ and nurses’ knowledge, satisfaction and self-confidence after a theoretical workshop on emergency care for traumatized children and clinical simulation.

METHODS: a quasi-experimental study, carried out with nursing students and nurses residing at a public university in southern Brazil. A workshop on pediatric trauma care was created and a mannequin was created for simulations. A knowledge pre-test and post-test and the Student Satisfaction and Self-Confidence in Learning instrument were applied to measure satisfaction and self-confidence in learning. For analysis, descriptive statistics and the Wilcoxon test were used to compare means before and after intervention.

RESULTS: the difference between misses and hits was statistically significant (p<0.005), demonstrating an increase in participants’ knowledge after the workshop. Satisfaction and self-confidence were demonstrated in the instrument’s high scores.

CONCLUSIONS: the effectiveness of the workshop in teaching-learning emergency care for pediatric trauma was demonstrated.
