Simulation-based education to train learners to "speak up" in the clinical environment: results of a randomized trial.

Oner C, Fisher N, Atallah F, et al. Simulation in healthcare : journal of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. 2018;13:404-412.

In this randomized controlled trial, simulation-based education provided to postpartum and labor and delivery nurses in the intervention arm was not associated with a difference in speaking-up scores as compared to those in the control group overall.
