Clinical event debriefing adapts learnings from simulation debriefing to allow clinicians time to reflect and collectively learn after significant clinical events. Debriefing provides the opportunity to discuss interactions within the clinical environment to improve performance in the future. Debriefings are categorized by time in relation to the initial event, with “hot” debriefings occurring in the minutes to hours following the event and “cold” debriefings occurring in the days to weeks following an incident. This webinar will focus on how cold briefings can improve resuscitation outcomes based on a recent study across multiple pediatric centers.


Learning Objectives 

  1. Discuss the importance and impact of a data-driven debriefing program after cardiac arrest

  2. Describe how to integrate quantitative data into a cardiac arrest debriefing program

  3. Identify challenges in implementing a cold briefing program
