We know that simulation debriefing can be hard. Poor facilitation risks psychological safety breaches or simply ineffective conversations. Faculty development probably helps us improve, especially if its part of a community of practice. The Meta Debrief Club in NHS Lothian draws on these principles in their monthly ‘debrief the debrief’ sessions.
Ed Mellanby, Nathan Oliver and Chris Schnieke-Kind offer us the story of how the Meta Debrief Club originated, how it works, and the transformative experience it has been for their faculty. We spoke about the way they enable psychological safety, how they use tools like the DASH and OSAD, and their hopes for broader collaboration.
