SON Hosts Gateway Debriefing Skills Workshop

Private funding creates possibilities!!! The James M. Johnston Trust provided funding to supplement faculty training on creating reflective practitioners through enhanced debriefing techniques.

On April 23, 2018 the School of Nursing hosted The Center for Medical Simulation’s Gateway Debriefing Skills Workshop which introduces healthcare education faculty to the foundational practices of the Debriefing with Good Judgment© method of debriefing. This innovative workshop combined an immersive, daylong, in-person learning experience with supplemental online learning that included customized peer-to-peer and mentor feedback.

It provided an opportunity to learn how to set high standards while holding high regard for the learner, to treat learners as thinkers and not just as doers as well as develop skills to efficiently improve future performance. Connections are made to a community of colleagues where participants can continually develop and improve their debriefing, feedback and clinical teaching skills. A lead CMS faculty member, Mary Fey, PhD, RN, CHSE-A and a team of talented educators, including Carol Durham, Kimberly Blasius, Ashley Kellish, Benjamin Cobb, Susan Martinelli, Ann Mullen, Rachel Onello, Mark Bullard, facilitated the workshop.
