Course Description

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.

Depending on demands from the field and available funding, we are considering the feasibility of developing a process for certifying raters. If a certification process is emplaced, this webinar training will be the first step.
