Presentation Abstract:

Debriefing is integral to healthcare simulation. The traditional debrief provides nursing students, immediate feedback and valuable insight in a judgment-free environment. Over the past two years, virtual clinical simulation exploded as programs worked to meet clinical hours and fill in learning gaps. Yet, very little is known about debriefing virtual simulations, and INACSL’s Healthcare Standards of Best Practice for Simulation don’t fully address nuances such as debriefing in a synchronous or asynchronous modality. This webinar will compare debriefing options and provide valuable insight into the styles that best fit your learners’ needs, help you make the most of learner analytics, and provide tips for organizing different debriefing formats.

Additional Presenter: Marg Verkuyl, NP, PNH, MN Professor of Nursing, Centennial College

Learning Objectives:

  1. Compare synchronous and asynchronous debriefing options for virtual simulation.
  2. Explain how to organize different types of debriefing formats.
  3. Evaluate debriefing formats to determine, the virtual simulation content and course learning outcomes, as well as evaluate how it meets learner needs.

Margaret Verkuyl, NP PHC, MN

Nursing Professor at Centennial College, Canada
Margaret Verkuyl is a nursing professor at Centennial College in Canada. Since, 2013, she has been a leader in developing and researching virtual simulations and interactive etextbooks. Over the years, she has received numerous prestigious local and international awards for her work. While gaining international attention, the virtual simulations have become pervasive in nursing education globally. More recently, she developed an open access Virtual Healthcare Experience consisting of eleven virtual gaming simulations that have had over 1.5 million plays! These experiential learning experiences reflect her personal teaching philosophy to engage learners in experiences and provide reflection opportunities to increase knowledge, acquire skills, develop critical thinking and engage in clinical decision-making. Concurrently, she has been involved in numerous research projects related to embedding virtual simulation effectively in curriculum and different ways to debrief virtual simulations. Recently, she was recognized for her work with the following awards: 2020 INACSL “Academic” Leadership Excellence Award; 2018 INACSL, Research Excellence Award, Hayden Vanguard Lectureship and the Society for Simulation in Healthcare: 2021 Article of Influence. She has published numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals and authored a book chapter on virtual simulation. In addition, her work is disseminated at national and international conferences.
