At CAPE, we are driven by an unrelenting focus on improving human and system performance for the benefit of our patients. 

Healthcare professionals work in complex, high-risk environments where safety is paramount and human lives are at stake. Rigorous training and objective assessment, if done well, are proven methods for optimizing individual and team performance and improving the quality of care. In this intensive online program enrollees will learn the strategies necessary to learn how to effectively debrief the performance of healthcare professionals in intensive simulated scenarios. 
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. You will learn to lead your team to reflect objectively on past performance and work collaboratively to improve outcomes. You will discover how successful debriefing can transform teams and practice. 



  • Lead productive debriefings that support learning and improved patient outcomes
  • Identify areas for improvement in a constructive, nonjudgmental manner
  • Objectively monitor the effectiveness of your own debriefings over time
