144 Advances in Simulation: Plus-Delta Debriefing


Ben talks about ‘Plus Delta’ debriefing with lead authors of 2 recent papers on the topic both published in Advances in Simulation. Adam Cheng starts the conversation talking about Embracing informed learner self-assessment during debriefing: the art of plus-delta, and giving us plenty of reasons to ensure this technique is on our repertoire as simulation educators. Ben goes on to talk with Raj Kainth about his team’s experience of training faculty for clinical debriefing in the Nghtingale facility during the pandemic – Dynamic Plus-Delta: an agile debriefing approach centred around variable participant, faculty and contextual factors 

The conversation emphasises the importance of agility and adaptability in our learning conversations, and underscore the need for ongoing scholarly conversation on the topic. 

Happy Listening
