Dubé MM, Kaba A, Cronin T, et al. Adv Simul (Lond). 2020;5:22.
This article describes the planning and implementation of a multi-site, multidisciplinary simulation program to provide critical just-in-time COVID-19 education in one Canadian province. The authors discuss the unique features and advantages of a centralized simulation response and key themes of the simulation program.
Wolfe H, Wenger J, Sutton RM, et al. Pediatr Qual Saf. 2020;59:e319.
This article describes the use of “cold” debriefings performed more than one day after in-hospital cardiac arrest events at institutions participating in a pediatric resuscitation quality collaborative. Cold debriefings took place in one-third of events; the median time to debriefing was 26 days. The majority of comments arising from the debriefings involved clinical standards, cooperation and communication. 
Dubé MM, Reid J, Kaba A, et al. Simul Healthc. 2019;14:333-342.
Simulation is used to assess process and team performance and prevent failure. This commentary discusses the Promoting Excellence And Reflective Learning in Simulation (PEARLS) framework and how the modifiable debriefing strategies in the framework can help identify system-level problems and implement changes to enhance patient safety.
Griswold S, Fralliccardi A, Boulet J, et al. Acad Emerg Med. 2018;25:168-176.
Simulation-based training has been used to develop skills in a safe manner in health care. This commentary draws from expert consensus to examine process, teamwork, and organizational factors that have limited the use of simulation in health care. The authors recommend a research agenda to improve understanding of how simulation can be used to develop and assess competency.
Cheng A, Grant V, Huffman J, et al. Simul Healthc. 2017;12:319-325.
Peer coaching can be an effective tactic to improve clinician performance and nontechnical skills. This commentary describes a debriefing skills development program for educators. A core element of the program involves a peer feedback form that explores 10 elements of debriefing that consider psychological safety and team building.
Eppich W, Hunt EA, Duval-Arnould JM, et al. Acad Med. 2015;90:1501-8.
This study describes a strategy for supporting deliberative practice through providing feedback during simulation training exercises. This method, called "microdebriefing," has been shown to be effective in improving skills for adult and pediatric advanced life support resuscitation
Mullan PC, Kessler DO, Cheng A. JAMA. 2014;312:2333-4.
Real-time or near real-time learning opportunities can drive improvement in health care. This commentary explains why debriefings after clinical events are a valuable educational strategy and provides insights into how clinical teams can implement debrief initiatives.
Cheng A, Grant V, Auerbach M. JAMA Pediatr. 2015;169:419-20.
Simulation is an educational model designed to provide a safe environment for learning and practicing new skills. This commentary describes the benefits to adopting this strategy to improve patient outcomes in pediatric settings and makes recommendations to integrate simulation at the systems level.
