Essential Debriefing Skills (two day course)

Course Description

The course runs over 2 days and introduces the concepts of structured debriefing, using the diamond debrief model, to facilitate deep reflection, exploration of human factors skills and transfer of learning from simulated experiences to the work place.

Participants will actively debrief simulation experiences and abstract exercises. Using faculty to recreate debrief situations and structured debriefing-of-the-debrief, participants can reflect on technical aspects of the model and how they may facilitate debriefs.

Please note in order to receive certification for the Essential Debriefing Skills course, following the course, internal and SLSN delegates will be expected to return to practice debriefing on a minimum of two other courses. Only 1/2 day attendance will be required on each of these other courses.  External (non SLSN) delegates are invited back to practice on mutually beneficial dates, but this is optional.

Course Objectives:

  • To provide an understanding of debriefing as an educational modality
  • To provide a detailed account of the diamond debrief model
  • To demonstrate how to develop transfer of learning and application in practice
  • To give practise and feedback opportunities to enable competence in using the diamond debrief model

Learning Outcomes

After completion of the full programme participants will be able to:

  • Explain the phases of the debrief diamond model linked to educational theory
  • Describe the place of debriefing within simulation-based learning
  • Demonstrate components of effective co-debriefing
  • Describe the responsibilities of a simulation facilitator
  • Demonstrate mastery of the essential skills of debriefing using the diamond debrief model from description through to application

This course is open to those with a direct role in clinical workforce development. Participants attending this training should only be those currently supported to deliver simulation based education as part of their role or who intend to practise debriefing on a voluntary basis.
