Simulation has acquired wide acceptance as an important component of education in health care and as a key tool to increase patient safety. This study aimed at identifying to what extent and how pediatric and neonatal simulation-based training (SBT) was being carried out in four Central European regions. We surveyed all pediatric and neonatal health care institutions in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and South Tyrol on their current state of SBT using an online questionnaire. We dispatched 440 questionnaires with a 45.9% response rate. Sixty-one percent (61.4%) of institutions performed SBT (algorithm training, 87.4%; skill training, 62.2%; high-fidelity SBT, 56.8%). Training was conducted interprofessionally at 88.9% of surveyed institutions. Physicians and nurses most often received SBT once per year. Lack of financial (62.2%) and personnel (54.1%) resources were the most frequent impediments to establish SBT. Although delivered heterogeneously, widespread use of pediatric simulation and a considerable number of already existing SBT programs are the key findings of this survey. These data are encouraging enough to promote more effective networking in simulation-based research, education, training, and quality improvement, as we aim to ultimately increase patient safety for neonates, infants, and children.
