Online Debriefing Skills Refresher Course

November 12, 2018

(All events are displayed in US Eastern Time — Boston)

The Center for Medical Simulation’s Online Debriefing Skills Refresher Course (ODSRC) provides a way for CMS’ Simulation Instructor Training alumni to refresh and continue to develop their debriefing skills. Over a 6 week period of time, participants will engage in a variety of online learning activities to refresh skills related to advocacy-inquiry, structuring a multi-phase debriefing discussion, and prebriefing. Based on both peer mentoring and faculty feedback, the course offers a variety of ways to build on skills acquired during our in-person courses.

This course is for experienced healthcare educators trained in the Debriefing with Good Judgment method. This is not an introductory Debriefing with Good Judgment course. Participants must have previously taken one of the following Center for Medical Simulation courses:
Gateway Debriefing Skills Workshop
Comprehensive Instructor
Simulation as a Teaching Tool

NOTE: During course weeks 3 (November 26-30) and 5 (December 10-14), CMS faculty will lead several synchronous online Simulated Debriefing sessions (90 minutes).

There are two weeks during which we’ll have synchronous sessions in the form of simulated debriefings and one synchronous closing session in week 6. For your planning purposes, we’d like to let you know when the synchronous sessions are scheduled.
