Debrief2Learn Aims to Improve Healthcare Outcomes with Effective Debriefing Practices
Sharing the recent announcement of the collaborative project Debrief2Learn, aims to improve healthcare outcomes by fostering effective feedback and debriefing practices.
Effective feedback and debriefing play a critical role in healthcare education in both simulated and workplace-based environments. Debrief2Learn supports clinical educators by sharing resources to guide faculty development and exploring the latest innovations. We aim to create an online community of practice for health professions educators while advancing knowledge through cutting-edge collaborative research. Debrief2Learn aims to improve healthcare outcomes by fostering effective feedback and debriefing practices. Effective feedback and debriefing play a critical role in healthcare education in both simulated and workplace-based environments.
We have designed Debrief2Learn with both educators and researchers in mind. This website will eventually be a comprehensive, one-stop resource for everything related to debriefing and feedback in healthcare education—and it will all be free to access. Internationally recognized experts in the field comprise our advisory board, who will help shape the content, format, and future direction of this website. Our collaborators are well-published leaders and innovators in the field who also share their ideas and expertise through presentations and workshops presented around the world.
To improve access to research, the research page lists relevant debriefing and feedback articles published by our team members. Each article can be accessed in a number ways: a link to PubMed, link to source journal, or a free PDF link (or a ResearchGate link to request a free PDF when this is not readily available). To assist with translating and using our research in your own setting, we offer resources and other helpful content, such as PDFs of our workshop slides and presentations.
To help you follow our research, we offer links to each paper’s Altmetric page (which provides links to online discussion about the research), a link to articles that cite our research, relevant blogs to innovative ideas, as well as social media accounts to keep you updated on the latest work. Finally, podcasts will feature leading international experts discussing recent papers in our field.
We have developed Debrief2Learn for you! Let us know if you’d like to get involved. You can contribute content (eg. Blogpost), collaborate in research, or become a team member. We’d love to hear from you!
