75 – Advances in Simulation: Another Debriefing Course! Who Benefits?

Another debriefing course! Who benefits?  Kristian Krogh, Albert Chan, and Nancy McNaughton    Many health professional educators attend courses on simulation debriefing, but do they actually perform better as simulation debriefers as a result?   Writing in Advances in Simulation, Kristian Krogh (@DrKrogh), Albert Chan (@gaseousXchange) and Nancy McNaughton (@uto_nancy) provoke us to consider this issue in their commentary – Another debriefing course!
