The role of feedback in teamwork is paradoxical. While feedback is a critical component of developing and sustaining teamwork, it is also one of the most uncomfortable responsibilities that we have as individual team members, educators, or leaders. Feedback conversations can stimulate higher levels of thinking, contribute to deeper learning, and impact future performance in teams. However, opportunities for developing, refining and evaluating such skills are few. This one-hour online…

How do I debrief learners from other professions? How do I not single out one profession if a person did not do well in the simulation? Healthcare simulation has been increasingly adopted and integrated into curricula as an effective platform for IPE because of what we know in adult learning, experiential learning, deliberate practice, and feedback. Debriefing, the learning conversation post a simulation experience, is the heart of simulation. To debrief effectively, faculty development on…

In clinical environments, learners often separate into profession specific settings, mirroring the unfortunate reality of a fragmented health care system. While health professionals assume responsibility for serving the same patients, they do so in separate spaces, often without the shared tools necessary to provide coordinated care. In short, patients transition care settings, but health care practitioners do not. To provide patient-centered care across practice settings, learners must re-…
