Faculty Development and Debriefing

Setting Up For Success: The Importance of Orientation and Prebriefing

Speakers: Mr Erich D. Brauer (Also known as Nick) and Assoc Prof Patrea Andersen
Date: 25 October 2019 (Fri)  | Time: 1320 - 1450 Location: Academia, Level 2, PSL 2

According to the INACSL Standards of Best Practice in simulation, all simulation-based experiences should begin with a pre-briefing. This should include a structured orientation of the participant(s) to the simulation space, equipment, simulator (e.g. manikin), information and communication technology used, roles (such as participants, facilitator, standardised patient), time allotment, broad and/or specific learning objectives, patient situation, and limitations ("INACSL Standards of Best Practice: SimulationSM Simulation Design," 2016). This is important not only for students to understand and respect the use of expensive and sophisticated technology, but also to help manage their anxiety in such technology-rich environment (Larew, Lessans, Spunt, Foster, & Covington, 2006). This lecture explores methods of orientation/ induction in simulation.

Learning Objectives:
  1. The workshop will outline the INACSL standards of best practice for simulation preparation/orientation.
