This two-day workshop is designed to be interactive; consisting of short didactic sessions and hands-on practice of the essential skills needed for simulation-based healthcare education. Participants will work in groups to run their simulation scenarios, discuss the common pitfalls encountered, and receive feedback on these sessions. They will also have an opportunity to share their experiences and exchange ideas on integrating simulation-based learning into their existing curricula.

Workshop: Debriefing

Date/Time
24 Feb
Venue
NUS, Centre for Translational Medicine (MD6), Level 3, Centre for Healthcare Simulation (CHS)
Description

This half-day workshop is meant to provide both Undergraduate and Postgraduate faculty with additional skills to facilitate an effective debriefing session. Participants will be exposed to different debriefing techniques and strategies and work in groups to discuss and role-play various debriefing situations using both standardized patients and high-fidelity simulators. They will also evaluate debriefing sessions, receive feedback on their debriefing techniques and reflect on areas where their debriefing can be made more effective. At the end of the Workshop, faculty should have a broader understanding of the theory and practice of effective debriefing in simulation.
