In the next of our series with Advances in Simulation, we consider Dieckmann et al. Variation and adaptation: learning from success in patient safety-oriented simulation training
In their own words “we describe the learning from success (LFS) approach to simulation and debriefing. Drawing on several theoretical frameworks, we suggest supplementing the widespread deficit-oriented, corrective approach to simulation with an approach that focusses on systematically understanding how good performance is produced in frequent (mundane) simulation scenarios.”
Appreciative inquiry, “positive deviance” and “exnovation” are new ideas for most simulation debriefers, but ideas which we need in our toolbox for making the most of our simulation.
We offer some practical examples for what this might mean for our scenario design, delivery and debriefing
Thanks to our guests and to Advances for another great collaborative effort
