Abstract [en]

Losing a loved one in the intensive care unit relates to a risk of developing stress and complicated grief. Education in intensive care nursing should cover end-of-life care, and the use of simulation in nursing education is a powerful instrument to develop confidence in end-of-life care. The aim of this study was to explore postgraduate nursing students' experiences with simulation training in end-of-life communication with intensive care patients and their families. Twenty-nine students answered a questionnaire and nine students participated in an interview. Analyses were conducted according to the principles of phenomenography. The result is presented in four categories including the following: the design of the scenario affects learning, uncertainty overshadows learning, intertwining theory and practice contributes to learning, and learning to encounter existential dimensions. The conclusion is that high-fidelity simulation training contributes toward preparing students to be attuned to what it can be like to be a family member in this situation. The scenarios contributed toward preparing the students to engage in end-of-life conversations during clinical placements.
