Debriefing for Mental Health Simulation

The project is being funded by Health Education England to explore the underlying challenges behind debriefing in simulations or clinical situations in the mental health environment.

It is often felt that there are different challenges and contexts which current debrief models do not adequately address and mental health simulation facilitators often have a different baseline skill set enabling a potentially more ambitious approach.

The project should be completed within the next 6 months. The survey is an important part of the scoping exercise in developing ideas around what the new model might help to achieve and how it might work, but also in pulling together a group of interested parties to help pilot and further develop the model as it emerges.

The project is being led by simulation faculty from the Maudsley Simulation team (Based at the Lambeth Hospital, London) who specialise in Mental health Simulation and training, with support from other faculty from the Simulation and Interactive learning centre at Guy's & St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust and King's College London.
