Feedback on the ‘Principles and Practice in Simulation’ module

“Dear Wesley and Martin,

I thought I would write to say an enormous thank you for a most enjoyable few days on the simulation module recently.  The group of candidates have been great together which must surely be regarded as a compliment to the faculty.

 I thought that the structure to the debrief module was excellent.   I found value in most if not all the components of the module.  Personally I think I have a greater understanding of the power of and the purpose of the debrief as a result of the opportunity to explore the different components of the debrief as laid out in the structure.  Particularly memorable components are exploring the understanding of aspects of feedback and the reflective practice”.
