Debriefing in Simulation
Alison Krueger, MSN-Ed, RN
Purpose of the Debrief
Application of Strategies
Understanding what occurred allows participants to generalize lessons to future applications
Provide specific information about performance based on a defined standard.
The results from Debriefing
Garden, A.L., LE Fevre, D.M., Waddington, H.L. and Weller, J.M. (2015) Debriefing after simulation-based non-technical skill training in healthcare: asystematic review. Anaesth Intensive care., 43, 300-8.
Simple technique to list what went well versus what should be changed for next time. CHALLENGE: add "discuss" to make the delta items actionable
From simple to complex
Advocacy and Inquiry
A more complex strategy that can be paired with plus/delta. This is used to uncover "frames" that participants utilize when approaching a problem
Promoting Excellence and Reflective Learning in Simulation. Reaction-Description-Analysis-Summary
Every block of stone has a statue inside of it and it is the task of the sculpture to discover it.
