This study aimed to describe the learning experiences of social and healthcare students and professionals of an interprofessional large‐group simulation. A simulation on sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) was organized in collaboration between a Finnish university, university hospital and university of applied sciences.
A case study.
The research data were collected at the large‐group simulation with a questionnaire containing variables on a five‐point Likert scale and open questions. The questionnaire was filled out by 350 students and professionals participating in the simulation. The quantitative data were analysed using descriptive statistical methods and the open‐ended questions by inductive content analysis.
The large‐group simulation proved to be a valid teaching and learning method for collaborating with other professionals and interacting with clients and the method can be considered as cost‐effective compared with small‐group simulations. The produced knowledge can be used in planning simulations in basic and in‐service training.
