Abstract:Post scenario debriefings are recognized as a crucial component in practicing simulation scenarios- and can improve medical educational outcomes in cardiopulmonary resuscitation. This study considers student participation during debriefings and the perceived effectiveness of the debriefing in student medical teams performing a cardiopulmonary resuscitation simulation. Debriefing is a post action review where facilitators guide learners to reflect on their experience in hopes to learn deeper and future improvement during similar tasks. Post scenario debriefings have been identified as a key factor in influencing learning as well as future team performance. While there has been extant research about debriefing in regard to facilitator involvement and the influence on learning and performance this study considers the perceived effectiveness of the debriefing as well as the amount of participation from the learners, which is objectively measured through sociometric sensors, during the debriefing and how this influences future team performance and learning. It is hypothesized that more participation from learners and debriefings that are perceived as effective are positively related with higher future team performance and learning. The study utilized a mixed-method approach in a longitudinal design with both quantitative and qualitative data. The study gathered data from video observations, team performance scores, sociometric badges, and surveys from approximately seventy-one respondents spread through 17 teams who are master students in the “Advanced Life Support” course at the University of Twente. No statistically significant relationships were found between the concepts: effectiveness of debriefing, learning, student participation, and team performance. The information from this study may assist future research where debriefings are employed in student teams practicing CPR simulation scenarios.
