Rigorous training and objective assessment, if done well, are proven methods for optimizing team performance and improving the quality of care. Yet providing your healthcare staff with constructive ways to learn from mistakes can be challenging.
In this new online course, you will master the art of debriefing, one of the most effective strategies for empowering healthcare professionals to deliver safe, high-quality patient care. You will learn to lead your team to reflect objectively on past performance and work collaboratively to improve outcomes. You will discover how successful debriefing can transform teams and practice. 

Learn to:

  • Lead productive debriefings that support learning and improved patient outcomes
  • Identify areas for improvement in a constructive, nonjudgmental manner
