Abstract

Abstract Background Empathic concern has been found to decline in health professional students. Few effectiveeducational programs and a lack of validated scales are reported. Previous analysis of the Empathic Concernscale of the Emotional Response Questionnaire has reported both one and two latent constructs. Aim To evaluatethe impact of simulation on nursing students’ empathic concern and test the psychometric properties of theEmpathic Concern scale. Methods The study used a one group pre-test post-test design with a convenience sampleof 460 nursing students. Empathic concern was measured pre-post simulation with the Empathic Concernscale. Factor Analysis was undertaken to investigate the structure of the scale. Results There was a statisticallysignificant increase in Empathic Concern scores between pre-simulation 5.57 (SD = 1.04) and post-simulation6.10 (SD = 0.95). Factor analysis of the Empathic Concern scale identified one latent dimension. ConclusionImmersive simulation may promote empathic concern. The Empathic Concern scale measured a single latentconstruct in this cohort.
