In this podcast, Lou Halamek shares his experiences during visits to NASA where he sat in on simulations and debriefings. Lou and Adam discuss how NASA style debriefings can help to improve performance, and highlight how this method of debriefing differs from traditional methods of healthcare simulation debriefing.
In this podcast, Vinay Nadkarni joins Adam Cheng to discuss clinical debriefing and the importance of quantitative data to inform the debriefing process. Dr. Nadkarni reflects on the robust post-cardiac arrest debriefing program that has been established in his own institution, and discusses the key ingredients for improving patient outcomes.
