Simulation has been recognized to be highly valuable in teaching and learning in nursing and midwifery education with positive outcomes for both students and patients. SimBegin is a faculty development program developed as a collaboration between SAFER simulation center and Laerdal Medical. Simulation needs planning, is challenging, and requires resources from educators. The faculty for the midwifery master program at the University in Stavanger requested SAFER’s help to increase student driven learning activities and increase the use of simulation-based training in the midwifery curriculum after a presentation of the SimBegin training program. To prepare students for their first clinical placement, we have implemented a module SimBegin, a beginner level of simulation.

Aim, methods and learning objectives:
The participants will be introduced to the method, viewing an introduction video, participate in simulation training in relevant midwifery cases, followed by group reflection. The debrief will follow the tool CORE (Context, Observation, Reflection, Evaluation). Finally, a film of the students’ evaluations will be presented.
