Stanford CAPE Video Talks on Simulation Debriefing, Care of Debriefly

Video in Simulation is a new series featuring Dr. Lou Halamek of the CAPE at Stanford simulation center discussing his philosophies of sim training and the use of video debriefing. This series of educational videos was produced by Debriefly, a new iOS- and Mac-based video capture solution for clinical simulation recording and debriefing. Debriefly is releasing the series in easily digestible clips – the first few are available now on their Youtube channel, with lots more to come in the following months.

About CAPE and Dr. Lou Halamek

CAPE is the world’s first simulation-based training and research center dedicated to the fetal, neonatal, pediatric and obstetric sciences. CAPE opened its doors in November 2002, thanks to a generous gift from an anonymous donor. A part of Stanford Medicine, CAPE’s training programs are greatly enriched by a close connection with Stanford Children’s Health and a shared commitment to state-of-the-art patient care and the training that makes that possible. Many of the healthcare professionals who teach at CAPE also care for patients within Stanford Children’s Health and serve on the faculty of the Stanford University School of Medicine.

Dr. Louis Halamek, CAPE’s Director, founded CAPE on the principle that rigorous training and objective assessment will produce optimal human performance. His inspiration comes from his work with NASA and their many decades of experience in training human beings to function in high-risk environments. Dr. Halamek is a neonatologist at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital and Professor of Pediatrics at Stanford University. He has over twenty years of experience in simulation-based training and research. Today, CAPE offers multiple training programs to novices and experts alike and is the site of clinically relevant research. The goal of every CAPE training and research program is to improve the safety, efficiency and effectiveness of patient care. Learn more about CAPE on their website!

CAPE Video in Simulation Series from Debriefly


Part 1: What Really Happened?
When debriefing a sim session, there’s often disagreement about who did or didn’t do what, and when. Video debrief is a powerful way to get everyone on the same page


Part 2: Debriefing Without Video
The challenges of assessing technical performance in simulation without the benefit of an audio/video record of the event.

Part 3: It’s Not ‘Rubbing It In’
Answering the question: “Why would you want to “rub in” someone’s mistakes in a sim by showing them on video?”
