The healthcare simulation field is rapidly evolving, with new technologies and methodologies being developed every year. Read on for ideas on how you can improve, expand, and accelerate your simulation program—starting today.
It's a simulation best practice to hold the debrief immediately after the scenario takes place so it's fresh in the learner's mind. But in a single day, facilitators may observe multiple learners perform the same simulation, and learners may take part in more than one event.
Debriefing isn't just a simple part of simulation-based education— it's, as Drs. Stormy Morales Monks and Scott Barnett Crawford (Texas Tech University El Paso) agree, a core element. But that doesn't mean the debriefing process can't pose challenges to facilitators.
How effective are your simulation debriefing skills? What challenges do you face? Are you meeting your training goals? What can AV do to enhance your debriefing process? In our four-part blog series on debriefing, we'll help you get the most out of your debriefing time for better learner outcomes and improved patient care.
