About this session

The Center for Medical Simulation’s Circle Up© provides a way for any member of a healthcare team who believes that patients are safer when teams coordinate their care delivery to develop their communication skills. Circle Up is a supportive system of work-based briefing, peer check-ins, and debriefing to boost clarity, coordination, and resilience in your healthcare workforce.

Healthcare teams are dealing with challenges never before seen and are experiencing extreme stress. This webinar will introduce a system for communication that supports excellence in care delivery and staff resilience.

Learning Objectives:

Following this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Apply the Circle Up system to coordinate healthcare team- and task- work
  • Facilitate pre-shift briefings
  • Coordinate mental rehearsals to prepare for complex care episodes
  • Facilitate post-shift/post-event debriefings
  • Use talk2support to support other team members

Equipment Requirements

The webinar is delivered via Zoom, a web conferencing platform. All materials and course interactions will occur online. In order to participate fully, each person must have:

  • Their own computer, tablet, or mobile phone
  • Reliable high-speed internet access (minimum 3 Mbps upload/download speed)
