MAS, Mariana et al. Simulación in situ y “madre” simulada, nuevas estrategias pedagógicas en pediatría. Anfamed [online]. 2021, vol.8, n.2, e602.  Epub Dec 01, 2021. ISSN 2301-1254.

The teaching-learning process in clinical disciplines includes amongst its challenges the acquisition of the student's skills with the patient. Opportunities for clinical practice have diminished. A smaller number of pediatric visits in 2020 during the Coronavirus pandemic increased this fact. Objective: to communicate the experience of in situ simulation and simulated mother carried out by the faculty of the Pediatric Emergency Department of the Pereira Rossell Hospital Center, address to students in the Pediatrics Curricular Unit (School of Medicine- UdelaR), in the case of an infant patient with respiratory pathology. Methods: Descriptive study. Simulated mother: faculty members/residents. Simulator: intermediate technology infant. Participants in the scenario: 2 students. Location: DPE.PRHC. Period: September- December 2020.Results: 327 students participated in the simulation, 255 answered the census. Usefulness of the simulation: 53.2% very useful / excellent, little or not at all useful 24.8%, no answer 22%. Credibility: acceptable 38%, very credible / excellent 27.5%, 12.5% ​​little or not at all credible, 22% do not answer. Group participation in the debriefing 64.5%, partial participation 11.4%, without debriefing 2.1%, no answer 22%. Discussion: Of the 327 students who carried out the simulation at least 24,8 % perceived it as little or not useful. The lack of previous information, the participation in the scenario of 2 students per group and the little interaction in the debriefing in some groups could have influenced. Conclusions: The communicated experience generated new teaching-learning opportunities. Methodological aspects that can be improved were identified.
