Review, Assess, Evaluate - Are You Gaining Everything You Can From Debriefing

Debriefing is a critical topic in healthcare education. Join us as two leaders in the field, Dr. Suzan Kardong-Edgren and Dr. KT Waxman, discuss the future of debriefing and why technology matters.

Debriefing can be a force multiplier in learning. But debriefing can also easily become a subjective “at the moment” experience. Debriefing contains leading indicators of student and cohort performance.  Why not use those indicators to better identify issues and sustain learning gains on a real-time cohort-wide basis?

A reliable healthcare learning management system (LMS) can help achieve that kind of impact. During this session, we will discuss how technology can create a fast and efficient environment for review, assessment, and evaluation of student, educator, and cohort performance.

Dr. Kardong-Edgren and Dr. Waxman will share their thoughts, and they will be taking your questions. Attendance is free.

Topics we'll be discussing: 

  • Fundamentals that make debriefing a success
  • Changes that we need to make in debriefing to keep pace with today’s environment
  • How learners respond to objective versus subjective data
  • Why the data presented during debriefing is a good indicator of student, educator, and cohort performance
  • How healthcare learning management systems have changed to support a more holistic approach to debriefing
  • How Laerdal has responded to the need for a more holistic approach
