Description: This module emphasizes the importance of prebriefing in simulation education and offers guidelines for creating effective prebriefing practices. Prebriefing, a vital component of simulation education, encompasses preparation and briefing before a simulation event. This module discusses critical prebrief elements, the significance of knowledge about the scenario, learners, cognitive load, and learning objectives in prebriefing and identifies areas of prebrief practice that meet INACSL best practice standards. In this module there are numerous real-life examples of various prebriefing scenarios, as well as interactive prebriefing activities, that allow the learner to assess their own knowledge about prebriefing best practices and evaluate their program for gaps in the endorsement criteria. Additionally, this module provides several resources and tools for prebriefing and assists the learners in assessing and improving their own prebriefing practices.
