Due to the potentially life-threatening conditions and risk of severe complications, post-anesthesia care units (PACU) require prompt team interventions. Miscommunication among professionals during crisis event management may directly affect patient safety. Therefore, developing strategies to enhance interprofessional collaboration (IPC) among critical care teams should be prioritized. In situ simulation (ISS) can be valuable in improving patient safety because it allows the practice of care team dynamics within a real clinical environment. However, its impact on IPC has yet to be demonstrated. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of in situ simulation-based training on interprofessional collaboration and satisfaction toward co-workers during crisis event management in post-anesthesia care. A quasi-experimental study, pretest and post-test design with a paired control group was performed. A convenience sample (N = 69) was recruited from the healthcare professionals of the regular PACU team. The intervention group (N = 33) underwent a 6-hour ISS-based interprofessional training session. Three scenarios of deteriorating cases encountered in critical care settings were used, each followed by a debriefing period. The measured outcomes were evaluated by the Collaborative Work Questionnaire and the Satisfaction Towards Coworkers Questionnaire. Questionnaires were answered by the two groups before the intervention (T1), immediately after (T2) and six to eight weeks later (T3). We found that the change from baseline (T1) was different between the groups for global IPC (F = 3.88; p = 0.025) and for communication (F = 4.09; p = 0.021). Regarding global IPC, we observed a significant group effect from T1 to T2 (F = 5.65; p = 0.021) and from T1 to T3 (F = 5.34; p = 0.024). Furthermore, we observed a significant time effect for the experimental group (F = 4.06; p = 0.027). Regarding communication, we observed a significant group effect from T1 to T2 (F = 7.5; p = 0.001). In conclusion, ISS-based training had a slight impact on self-assessed IPC and communication during crisis event management in the PACU. The use of ISS should be promoted among critical care teams to enhance IPC and contribute to patient safety.
