Presenting at the Nexus Summit:

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 how to debrief interprofessional teams are necessary. This session will discuss challenges and practice…
