Extant literature supports that ED health care providers lack self-efficacy for recognizing and managing pediatric emergencies, particularly in community-based hospital settings. Further, empirical evidence supports that in-situ simulation provides an effective educational venue for improving self-efficacy. However, a gap exists in measuring self-efficacy with a validated and reliable instrument. Therefore, an instrument development research study was done to construct and test the new instrument.
