Programs for Healthcare Instructors

Simulation Instructor

Develop and Improve Your Own Simulation Programs

CAPE's three-day Simulation Instructor Program challenges professionals to design, deliver and improve highly effective training programs for their own hospitals, clinics or education centers. This is CAPE's most comprehensive program with a longstanding interest by professionals from around the world who seek to promote performance improvements using simulation as the methodology for learning in healthcare.


Advanced Debriefing

Advance Your Debriefing Skills to the Next Level

During CAPE's full-day Advanced Debriefing Program, trainees actively enhance their ability to deliver constructive, objective and concise debriefings by functioning as the lead and assistant debriefer of increasingly complex scenarios.  This one-day program empowers professionals with debriefing skills that leverage the most learning from both real-life and simulated medical events. 


Intensive Scenario Design

Become an Expert Designer of Multidisciplinary Scenarios

Creating a dynamic scenario is more than simply writing up past patient encounters.  In this full-day program, trainees tie clear and concise learning objectives to cognitive, technical and behavioral skills in scenarios designed to meet the needs of learners with varying levels of experience. Trainees leave the program with two fully drafted scenarios to use at their home institutions.


Remote Debriefing Assessment

Gain Feedback via Remote Debriefing

The Debriefing Assessment Program offers debriefers a simple and relatively low-cost way to further develop and maintain debriefing skills by receiving expert feedback at a time and place convenient to you.  Using our innovative assessment tool, expert CAPE instructors read your scenario designs, analyze and score your video-taped debriefings and share the assessment with you through a one-hour phone conversation.   


Debriefing Real Clinical Events

Learn Debriefing Strategies Specific to Live Patient Care

Debriefing real-world clinical events requires different strategies than those typically used in training environments.  During this full-day program, special consideration of legal issues is accompanied by multiple opportunities for trainees to conduct debriefings and receive expert feedback on how to deliver constructive, objective and concise debriefings in the real clinical setting.
