Making Use of Diverse Data Sources in Healthcare Simulation Research
This chapter provides readers with an introduction to some of the diverse data sources available to simulation researchers. This chapter compliments previous chapters (e.g., Chap. 4, Starting your Research Project) by drawing on research examples to highlight data generated from healthcare simulation-based encounters that may help the reader determine which data forms will best answer their research questions. In keeping with the goals of this text and the diversity of simulation in healthcare, the chapter also draws on examples from a variety of health professions domains, including nursing, medicine, and allied health, while highlighting a variety of simulation modalities, such as live simulations and augmented reality. The chapter ends with advice and suggestions as well as pointers to other complementary chapters in this book.
