This programme is specifically for GSTT staff  who wish to develop debriefing skills for simulation-based learning.

Course Description

Part one: 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.

Part two is the coaching phase:

After Day two of the formal training we encourage participants to further practise the stages of the diamond debrief, debriefing with coaching and supervision at the SaIL centre.
