Facilitation and Debriefing in Simulation Education.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Successful simulation requires effective facilitation and debriefing to achieve educational goals. Simulation educational methods are diverse, ranging from partial task training to complicated, interdisciplinary team training. Various debriefing models have emerged based on method of instruction, learner experience, time and equipment capability, and physical facilities. The general structure of most debriefing sessions focuses on participant reactions, followed by analysis, and ending with a discussion of lessons learned. Two leading debriefing models, the Structured and Supported Debriefing Model and the Debriefing with Good Judgment Model, are described in further detail.
