Although the glitzy part of healthcare simulation often focuses on high fidelity manikins, most learning occurs during the debriefing. Debriefing clinical simulation experiences is increasingly understood as a crucial step in clarifying and consolidating insights and lessons from simulations. The Debriefing Assessment for Simulation in Healthcare (DASH) is designed to assist in evaluating and developing [...]
Many educators consider debriefing as the most important step in healthcare simulation. Healthysimulation.com has previously published several guides to debriefing including the GAS method and Debriefing with Good Judgement. In 2015, Dr. Walter Eppich and Dr. Adam Cheng published a blended approach to debriefing entitled Promoting Excellence and Reflective Learning in Simulation (PEARLS) (Sim Healthcare, [...]
The Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) project was designed to ensure that future nurses will have the knowledge, skills and attitudes (KSAs) necessary to continuously improve the quality and safety of the healthcare systems within which they work. Today guest author Dr. Kim Baily PhD, MSN, RN, CNE, shares about the six quality [...]
Healthcare Simulation is divided into three stages, prebriefing, simulation scenario and debriefing. Simulation links theory to practice by means of reflection, critical thinking and improved clinical practice. A variety of creative debriefing strategies may be found in the literature however, the Gather-Analyze-Summarize (GAS) tool is probably one of the easiest to understand. GAS was developed [...]
