The aim of this paper is to critically review what is felt to be important about the role of debriefing in the field of simulation-based learning, how it has come about and developed over time, and the different styles or approaches that are used and how effective the process is. A recent systematic 

Student perspectives on post‐simulation debriefing

The advocacy–inquiry method (AIM) is a newer debriefing model where the facilitator seeks to understand the student's underlying rationale for their decisions.

The Equivalence of Video Self‐review Versus Debriefing After Simulation: Can Faculty Resources Be Reallocated?

The aim of the study was to determine if video‐assisted self‐debriefing, as a form of self‐guided learning, would have equivalent learning outcomes compared to standard debriefing.

Debriefing Frameworks and Methods

It Is Time to Consider Cultural Differences in Debriefing

The goal was to raise awareness of cultural differences and stimulate work to make progress in this regard to consider how to balance standardization in debriefing with a culture-sensitive interpretation of simulation-based learning.

‘The Diamond’: a structure for simulation debrief

The diamond debriefing method is specifically designed to allow an exploration of the non‐technical aspects of a simulated scenario.

Debriefing for technology‐enhanced simulation: a systematic review and meta‐analysis

It is sought to characterise howdebriefing is reported in the TES literature, identify debriefing features that are associated with improved outcomes, and evaluate the effectiveness of deb Briefing when combined with TES.

Debriefing: The Essential Step in Simulation

Abstract Simulation focuses on active learning, builds confidence, and enhances judgment. Debriefing provides purposeful direction to help improve thinking and clarify thought processes. Debriefing

Constructive Debriefing for Trauma Team Education

The role of simulation-based education in training trauma teams is growing, and debriefing is a critical component of this educational modality. With increasing evidence to support the role of

Debriefing Methods in Simulation-Based Education

Simulation-based education provides the transfer of the theoretical and practical knowledge gained in the learning environment to the clinical environment. Learning in a clinical simulation takes



How to Facilitate a Debriefing

Preparing to facilitate the debriefing part of a simulation game requires as much care and attention as preparing to lead the introductory and play parts. This article provides a sort of mini-manual;

Key elements of debriefing for simulator training

The detailed, video-based discussion of a simulator scenario with all participants directly after the session, with the aim to enhance self-reflection, is called, ‘debriefing’.

Written Debriefing: The Next Vital Step in Learning with Simulations

After 25 years of working with simulations, one of the author’s amazing discoveries has been that students learn much more after completig written debriefing than just oral debriefing. However, in

Value of Debriefing during Simulated Crisis Management: Oral versus Video-assisted Oral Feedback

Exposure to a simulated crisis without constructive debriefing by instructors offers little benefit to trainees, and the addition of video review did not offer any advantage over oral feedback alone, which means valuable simulation training can be achieved even when video technology is not available.

Debriefing as formative assessment: closing performance gaps in medical education.

The authors present a four-step model of debriefing as formative assessment that blends evidence and theory from education research, the social and cognitive sciences, experience drawn from

Barriers to use of simulation-based education

PurposeBarriers to simulation-based education in postgraduate and continuing education for anesthesiologists have not been well studied. We hypothesized that the level of training may influence

Debriefing was effective on all 4 criteria; debriefing improves task performance, helps user learn more about the decision domain, develop heuristics, and expend less cognitive effort in decision making.

Differences that Make a Difference: Intercultural Communication, Simulation, and the Debriefing Process

Communication is a fundamental life process through which humans learn to make sense of their worlds and relate themselves to other people. Many of the dynamics associated with that process are
