PURPOSE To evaluate the effectiveness of a novel, simulation-based educational model rooted in scaffolding theory that capitalizes on a systematic progressive sequence of simulators that increase in realism (i.e., fidelity) and information content. METHOD Forty-five medical students were randomly assigned to practice intravenous catheterization using high-fidelity training, low-fidelity training, or progressive training from low to mid to high fidelity. One week later, participants completed… CONTINUE READING
