WCCC. 2012 Recognize that debriefing during simulation does not always have to be at the end. List the benefits of using in-simulation debriefing during a student nurse simulation scenario. Describe a teaching strategy designed to improve learning outcomes and decrease stress and anxiety during a student nurse simulation scenario. When you first started learning about Simulation what were you told? What education did you receive? What did you hear about debriefing? Did you get enough information on debriefing? The Simulation Model - a review (Jeffries & Rizzolo, 2006) Simulations are student Experiential Learning centered Experience Debriefing – the activity that follows a simulation experience led by a facilitator wherein feedback is provided on the simulation participants’ performance while positive aspects of the completed simulation are discussed and reflective thinking encouraged (NLN-SIRC, 2010) Simulation Innovation Resource Center (SIRC) Guided Reflection – the process encouraged by the instructor during debriefing that reinforces the critical aspects of the experience and encourages insightful learning allowing the participant to link theory with practice and research (NLN-SIRC, 2010). Faculty must: be comfortable with the topic be prepared comfortable with self acceptance of deviations from the planned scenario Equal Time spent in the Simulation Scenario and Debriefing ROLE OF EVALUATOR Testing purposes Observer ROLE OF FACILITATOR Provide Support Cues ask questions what if? Teaching Simulation Guide Debriefing @ end or during phases of the simulation Reflection is a Conscious, Self- Evaluation that Connects Theory to Clinical It is the opportunity to self-assess their actions, decisions, communication, and deal with the unexpected. Prep Questions to lead and focus on objectives of the simulation Guided by Carper’s Fundamental Patterns of Knowing in Nursing: Empirical Aesthetic Personal Ethical (Jeffries, 2007; Johns, 1995) Empirical What knowledge did you have that assisted you in this scenario? Aesthetic What was a priority for you? Patient Problem Goal for simulation Personal How did you feel in this scenario? What factors were influencing you? Ethics What personal values or beliefs influenced your actions today? Apply Theory to Clinical Practice Shock State • Assessment • Treatment strategies • Evaluation Hemodynamic Monitoring • Oxygen administration • Basic parameters (arterial line, CVP) Intravenous Medications • Vasoactive drug titration • Protocols • Fluid challenges Boy, Was I Wrong! ▀ ▀ ▀ ▀ ▀ “Causes more frustration than is helpful.” “Reinforces student inadequacies.” “3 hours of lecture is not enough time for us to know what to do in a situation simulating real life.” “Showed our deficient knowledge.” “Watching students not know what to do is not very helpful.” One Bite At A Time ▀ ▀ ▀ ▀ “I didn’t feel threatened or scared because I had the help of the entire class. It was conducive to learning because when you get nervous, you forget things.” “Better learning experience when instructor is involved and asking questions, like, what are you thinking you should do now?” “Liked the group collaboration, it was less stressful and more conducive to learning.” “I think it was a really good learning experience because it was nice we were not put on the spot, especially when having to think about what needed to be done next.” http://www.teachingexpertise.com/e-bulletins/effective-debriefing-makingthinking-and-learning-skills-visible-7895 Prebriefing “Redoing a skill” Facilitator demonstration “Rescue” Teachable moments “Expect the unexpected” DVD clip from the beginning of Shock Sim Scenario 1/12; Shows PreSim Setup – about 4 minutes. Prebriefing “Redoing a skill” Facilitator demonstration “Rescue” Teachable moments “Expect the unexpected” Prebriefing “Redoing a skill” Facilitator demonstration “Rescue” Teachable moments “Expect the unexpected” Debriefing should be learner-centric Build a challenging yet safe environment Debriefing points are derived through setting appropriate objectives which drive the process If using in-scenario debriefing spend time up front explaining what will occur Debriefing should enhance learning Debriefing should increase understanding Identifies best practices Promotes safe, quality patient care Promotes knowledge transfer (Material supported by International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning. Published by Elsevier) Follow standardized format and scoring and be appropriate to the level of fidelity (low to high) in order to achieve participant outcomes Have predetermined parameters for terminating the scenario before its completion Should be held in familiar environment for participants Scenario should be achievable within appropriate time frame Incorporate evidence-based practice Students should have been previously presented/tested for content Clinical Judgment Clinical Reasoning/ Critical Thinking Problem Solving Psychomotor Skills Be Real Correct a limited amount of errors Don’t beat a dead horse Encourage self-critique Constructively correct behaviors, attitudes & actions that hamper performance Foster self-reflection, trust, open communication & confidentiality Use Evidence-Based debriefing methodologies Lack of upfront explanation & purpose Autocratic attitude Not recognizing students’ emotions Yes/no answers Excessive instruction Putting too much in simulation scenario Dismukes, R., Gaba, D., and Howard, S.
