State the overall Goal or Outcome : Describe a framework for creating increased connections between debriefing of real clinical events and debriefing of simulated events. Use the synergy between these two related spheres of debriefing activity to drive education, process improvement, and team-building efforts in clinical units such as emergency departments, intensive care units, and non-ICU patient care floors.
Intended Audience : This session is appropriate for participants at the intermediate or advanced level. Professionals who would likely benefit from the educational content would include nurses, physicians, medical/nursing directors of clinical units, simulation educators, patient safety/quality improvement leaders or administrators, and allied health professionals.
Relevance to the Conference : We believe that efforts to increase the connectivity between debriefing of clinical events and translational simulation events has the potential to enhance teamwork, education, and patient safety. Historically, medicine has been the only high-stakes industry that does not overtly require specific forms of practice before a team works together in a crisis situation. Similarly, it has been the only one that does not broadly require systematic post-action debriefing following high-stakes events that push the limits of team resiliency and system safety. While simulation has already had real and lasting effects on medicine, it has too often remained in an educational space that can seem remote from everyday clinical care. We hope that increased synergy between clinical debriefing and translational simulation will help bridge that gap. (See attached/uploaded list of References.)
