About the project
The study is part of the project Education for the Future in a changing health landscape, NurseEduFut.
Simulation-based learning can educate nurses who have action skills to work with complex patient situations.
In simulation-based learning students train on clinical issues in a safe environment, with opportunities to reflect together over the action in debrifing. A debrifing is a guided reflection of the action that took place in the simulation. It is identified that learning primarily occurs in the debriefing part.
The aim of the study is to provide new knowledge about debrief as a method to promote high order thinking skills in nursing education.
First part of the project is linked to systematic review of existing evaluation tools for debrifing. Part two and three are linked to students and facilitators. Although debrief is identified as the most important part of learning, it is not explored what nursing students experience as important for achieving higher thinking skills. Facilitators' experience of debrifing for achieving students higher order thinking skills is not explored.
The study will have a qualitative approach. Through a triangulation of qualitative methods; Systematic search, video observations, focus group interviews with students and qualitative in depth interviews with facilitators, the research questions will be highlighted.
