There are numerous sessions about simulation at this year's NLN Summit. The NCSBN Study results will be presented by Jennifer Hayden; there are 13 concurrent sessions, a special session on virtual simulations, and a post-Summit workshop on unfolding cases. And of course, the Deborah Spunt lecture. Go to http://www.nln.org/summit/2014/index.html for more information.
Kristina Thomas Dreifuerst, PhD, RN, ACNS-BC, CWOCN, CNE was selected to deliver the Debra L. Spunt Lecture at the 2014 NLN Summit. Dr. Dreifuerst is well known for her Debriefing for Meaningful Learning teaching method. The title of her presentation is Reasoning and Practice Education: Debriefing In, On, and Beyond Simulation. We hope to see you there.
Featured CourseBeyond Basic Debriefing
This course was designed to challenge educators to expand debriefing skills beyond the basics. Educators are being continuously tasked with modifying what and how they teach to facilitate students in acquiring the knowledge, skills, and attitudes essential to be safe, competent practitioners in the ever-fluctuating health care environment. The course will include: content on briefing as a component of the debriefing process; simulation activities where debriefing may expand participant outcomes; and different debriefing techniques, which may be combined, to increase participant competencies. Educators will develop a debriefing quality improvement plan.
