Abstract

The use of simulation is suggested to be an innovative and appropriate tool in educating health professionals. However, the evidence regarding the use of simulation, especially the childbirth manikin, within midwifery education is limited. This article describes a pilot project evaluating midwifery student and midwifery educator experiences with the use of simulation. The benefits, issues related to reality setting and theory–practice gap, as well as challenges will be discussed.
