Debriefer Rater Training Workshop (DASH© ) Available On January 28th

Posted by


Debriefing clinical simulation experiences is increasingly understood as a crucial step in clarifying and consolidating insights and lessons from simulations. CMS’ Debriefing Assessment for Simulation in Healthcare© instrument (DASH©) is designed to assist in evaluating and developing debriefing skills. It evaluates the strategies and techniques used to conduct debriefings by examining concrete behaviors. The DASH is based on evidence and theory about how people learn and change in experiential contexts, and is designed to allow assessment of debriefings from a variety of disciplines and courses, varying numbers of participants, a wide range of educational objectives, and various physical and time constraints.

CMS will be conducting an online DASH Rater Training Webinar on January 28th from 5:00-9:00 PM US EST (UTC-5). Previous participants in the rater training have said they find it very useful in providing feedback to debriefers or formally assessing their debriefing skills. The training will be led by CMS’ senior faculty members Robert Simon, EdD and Jenny Rudolph PhD.
