State the overall Goal or Outcome : The goal of this workshop is to introduce and apply the novel Pearls for System Integration (PSI) debriefing framework. This framework’s purpose is to provide debriefers with tools to systematically and proactively uncover system issues in a systems-focused debrief.
Simulation is increasingly being used to improve systems of care by focusing discovery and learning on the tools, tasks, environments, organizations and processes that support the provision of healthcare. However, current debriefing strategies (e.g. PEARLS framework) primarily focus on individual learners. They are incomplete for addressing system and process issues. Consequently, there is a risk of failing to identify the full range of latent safety threats, gaps or inefficiencies due to systems level deficits. System- focused simulations and debriefing, when done with interprofessional (IP) teams as part of new space or process design and testing, are part of a continuous cycle of quality improvement that can uncover these system deficits.
The PSI framework is a new modification of the PEARLS framework. PSI outlines five distinct phases: pre-work phase, description, optional reactions, analysis, and summary.
Intended Audience : The Intended target audience is intermediate to advanced. There are multiple groups that will benefit from this workshop including clinical team members interested in improving processes and systems; organizational leaders; researchers; simulationists involved in quality improvement; quality improvement, process improvement, human factors and infrastructure leaders.
Relevance to the Conference : This interactive workshop will give clinical and non-clinical participants the framework and tools they need to debrief system-focused simulations, using a variety of instructional design methodologies.
