This programme is for Trust staff who wish to develop debriefing skills for simulation-based learning interventions. It is part of the faculty development programme of SaIL being a mandatory part of the Essential Simulation faculty programme. Prior completion of the Introduction to Simulation course is required unless a candidate has had exemption from the Director of SaIL
Part one: the course runs over 2 days which are separated by a number of weeks. The course introduces the concepts of structured debriefing, using the diamond debrief model, to facilitate deep reflection, exploration of human factors skills and transfer of learning from simulated experiences to the work place.
Participants will actively debrief simulation experiences and abstract exercises. Using faculty to recreate debrief situations and structured debriefing-of-the-debrief, participants can reflect on technical aspects of the model and how they may facilitate debriefs. In addition they will have an opportunity to reflect on their use of the debrief diamond experiences in between the two days.
Part two is the coaching phase: Participants will attend as novice faculty on SaIL courses between the two course dates to practise using the description and analysis phases of the debrief. After Day two of the formal training we encourage participants to further practise the stages of the diamond debrief, debriefing under supervision.
