Clinical simulation plays a key role in updating and training new protocols. With the rapid growth of the contagion of COVID-19, it is extremely important to train health professionals who will care for patients allegedly contaminated with COVID-19. Thus, a simulated training was created that aims to implement the new protocol for the care of patients with suspected COVID-19 for all health professionals who work at the Hospital das Clínicas at Unicamp. Despite the importance of training, it is necessary to investigate whether it is being effective in acquiring knowledge, skills and the perception of feeling capable in the face of service, relationships with colleagues, autonomy and competence. Objective: This study aims to investigate the effectiveness of simulated training for COVID-19 in the acquisition of knowledge, skills and the feeling of feeling capable in the face of care, relationships with colleagues, autonomy and competence of the health professional. Method: this observational field study will include health professionals from Unicamp Hospital das Clínicas who agree to participate in the research. Health professionals will answer two questionnaires before and after training. The first questionnaire will contain 20 knowledge questions about the COVID-19 protocol. The second questionnaire will contain 14 questions regarding self-efficacy, that is, how much the professional feels capable of doing an activity, autonomy, relationship with the team and competence.
