Abstract

Date Presented 4/19/2015

The literature indicates a void in the use of simulation during occupational therapy education. This study reveals that the addition of simulated learning in a high-acuity medical setting enhances student self-efficacy and preparedness for Level I fieldwork (FW) in medical contexts. Further study is required.
