UNMC WND Ward Simulation Debriefing 03.15.2017

Please bring a copy of this checklist to the meeting



IF YOU ARE EXTREMELY PRESSED FOR TIME TO DO THE READINGS, please read the NLN Standards article first.

We will be using these three questions to guide or discussions when reading the articles.

  1.  How does method type of debriefing provide for learner self-assessment?
  2. How does this method of debriefing provide for facilitating focused discussion?
  3. How does this method of debriefing provide information in the form of directive feedback/and or teaching?
