Imach S, Eppich W, Zech A, et al. Simul Healthc. 2020;15.
This case study describes the use of root cause analysis to investigate a critical incident occurring during an emergency medicine simulation scenario, and discusses the importance of these investigations in furthering the training of emergency medicine personnel and instructors.
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.
Adler MD, Mobley BL, Eppich W, et al. J Patient Saf. 2018;14:143-147.
This study reports the results of a large-scale simulation project conducted prior to opening a new hospital. The majority of simulation participants found the practice helpful in preparation for transitioning to a new hospital. The authors suggest that use of simulation in new facility training can enhance patient safety.
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
