Participate in a Systematic Review of In Situ Simulation Debriefing

Are you an experienced simulation debriefer?

Victoria Brazil, Walter Eppich, and Margaret Bearman are looking for volunteers to participate in a systematic review of debriefing strategies for in situ simulations.

Please read their note below, and contact them at ISSdebriefing@gmail.com if you are interested in participating.


The optimal debriefing strategies for in situ simulations (ISS) are unclear. The current practice of expert and experienced in situ debriefers has not been reviewed systematically. Most published reports of ISS programs lack detail as to how debriefing is conducted.

We’re conducting a study which aims to review the current practice of experienced in situ simulation debriefers – their context and approach, and the basis on which debriefing approach is determined. We’d like your help!

If you are interested in finding out more – please email ISSdebriefing@gmail.com


Many thanks

Victoria Brazil, Walter Eppich and Margaret Bearman

The Center for Medical Simulation congratulates the many CMS faculty, board members, graduates, and friends who were appointed as inaugural fellows of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare’s SSH Academy.

CMS team members in the first group of fellows include Chief Curiosity Officer Dan Raemer, Director of Educational Innovation & Development Janice Palaganas, faculty member Walter Eppich, Executive Director Emeritus Jeff Cooper, and Board of Trustees member James Gordon.

CMS is proud to be represented in the SSH Academy by so many members of our faculty and leadership team, and looks forward to seeing them formally inducted at the International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) in Orlando, in January 2017.

CMS Faculty Head West, Or Is That East?

CMS faculty members Robert Simon, Dan Raemer, Jenny Rudolph and Walter Eppich are in Australia to teach the IMS “Simulation As A Teaching Tool” and “Advanced Debriefing”  Workshops to our simulation friends in the land of OZ.  This is our third year conducting workshops in Australia and we never fail to be impressed by the knowledge, enthusiasm and dedication of Simulation Educators in this wonderful country.  CMS has made many friends here and hopes to make these workshops an ongoing event.

After the Australia workshops, Robert, Dan and Walter will be doing something new this year. Instead of heading home they’ll  travelling further west, or is that east, to Hong Kong where they’ll be conducting the “Simulation As A Teaching Tool” workshop for our friends at the Hong Kong Hospital Authority.

The dates for the 2011 workshops in Australia and Hong Kong are:

In June, Robert Simon will help teach the “Simulation As A Teaching Tool” workshop at our IMS/Europe Affiliate, Hospital Virtual Valdecilla in Santander, Spain. The cost for this workshop is only $2,000 Euros and it will be conducted in English. Contact Ignacio delMoral at idelmoral@me.com for more information.
