We SEE simulation differently:
Safety * Effectiveness * Efficiency


Simulation Instructor Programs 2019:



New Online Debriefing Program (OPEN)


CAPE's Online Debriefing Program in partnership with the Office of the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning at Stanford University is now available. In this new online course, you will master the art of debriefing, one of the most effective strategies for empowering healthcare professionals to deliver safe, high-quality patient care.


Recent Webinar

In this webinar, CAPE’s directors, Lou Halamek, M.D. and Nicole Yamada, M.D., use an interactive discussion and video exemplars from CAPE’s new Online Debriefing Program to highlight and analyze four foundational strategies from CAPE’s 20 Strategies for Effective Debriefing. You’ll learn how to clearly communicate expectations for how a debriefing will be conducted, how to begin debriefings in an objective and efficient manner, and ways to avoid creating defensiveness during debriefings.
