Online Training

Highlights & Benefits

Online, web-based training allows participants to have interactive experiences with our faculty on particular topics without the hassle and cost of travel. The Center for Medical Simulation currently offers synchronous (live) webinars to allow for real-time engagement. Plans are underway for additional online workshops and modules that may be synchronous, asynchronously self-paced or facilitated, or a combination.

Debriefing Assessment for Simulation in Healthcare (DASH) Rater Training Workshop

Debriefing clinical simulation experiences is widely understood as a crucial step in clarifying and consolidating insights and lessons from simulations. The Debriefing Assessment for Simulation in Healthcare (DASH) is designed to assist in evaluating and developing faculty debriefing and instructional skills. The DASH is a widely used instrument with known psychometric properties. It is designed to be applied in a variety of healthcare disciplines and simulation settings and can be used for summative or formative evaluation. This intensive immersion provides an overview of the six elements to an effective debriefing as defined by the DASH before moving into three rating cycles. Attendees join a growing community of DASH-trained raters who are positioned as leaders in the field.

This is an online course facilitated by one or more instructors. The course is delivered via a web conferencing platform. All materials and course interactions will occur online.

The Feedback Course (Online)

Do you find it difficult to give feedback to your peers or students? Do you ever wish you had feedback superpowers? Wish you never had to dread another feedback conversation? You are in good company.  We spoke with healthcare educators, leaders, and managers around the world and found a recurring theme: feedback conversations are tough! When someone has done something “wrong,” when performance or conflict management is required, people fear that the conversation will go badly, or careen out of control. They then shy away from crucial developmental conversations. This course helps you have these difficult conversations and build a culture of feedback by experiencing it first hand.

Using cutting edge, interactive, on-line skill-building techniques, this course develops your feedback muscles.  You will use repetitions of self-assessment, peer feedback, practical doses of theory, and our innovative feedback skill development tool, the FACE (Feedback Assessment for Clinical Education).  You tailor knowledge acquisition to your learning style: read, skim summary points, or listen to podcasts.
