An excerpt from the beginning of CHAPTER I.
It should come as no surprise that people learn from experience. In one form or another, it is the primary means by which most of us have come to master the fundamentals of our profession. This is why simulation is such a valuable tool for learning. It allows people to have experiences they couldn't otherwise get in a predictable or systematic way. However, experience alone is not enough to ensure high levels of performance, patient safety, and quality of care. In addition to the experience itself, learners must receive feedback in order to learn. This includes the feedback that they receive during the simulation as well as the feedback they receive based on a careful reflection of events with instructors and their peers after the simulation scenario has ended. These after-action reviews or debriefs have been described as the heart and soul of learning from practice in simulations (Rall, Manser, & Howard, 2000). Empirical studies support this notion and have shown that debriefs are the primary means by which people learn from their experiences in simulations and transfer what they learn to the real world (Savoldelli, Naik, Park, Joo, Chow, & Hamstra, 2006; Issenberg, McGaghie, Petrusa, Gordon, & Scalese, 2005). So, in order for team training to result in better clinical outcomes, team members must engage in a quality debrief to make sense of the experience and translate that into better performance in the future. But what does a good debrief look like? How is it run, and by whom? What can trainers do to ensure that every debrief is as good as it can be-that team members come away from the experience learning the right lessons? While the science of training and simulation community of practice have developed answers to these questions, they remain generally inaccessible for practitioners. This book addresses that need. Written for practitioners charged with implementing simulation-based training (SBT) for teams in healthcare, it provides a practical tool set for conducting debriefs.

Loss can either break you open or break you down-your choice. If you choose to allow it to break you open, you can discover who you truly were meant to be before time and the world made you forget.
How Learning to Say Good-bye Taught Me How to Live is a narrative journal of the many spiritual lessons and gifts I received during a period of tremendous loss in my life and how they were put to the test during my best friend's battle with cancer. It chronicles the close friendship we shared during this traumatic time and how we worked to stay conscious and move forward with our inner growth despite our pain. When we are asked to say good-bye to what was, we are offered an opportunity to experience what can be-if we do the work.
Each chapter highlights the various inner battles as well as the gifts that are revealed during difficult times. The lessons include issues of control, judgment, needing to be right, forgiveness, self-love, receiving, and the power of our beliefs. The gifts include partnership with your Higher Self, true intimacy, the power of play and laughter, faith and patience, angel whispers, co-creating, and much more. At the end of each chapter is a list of questions and thoughts that aided me to go deeper with the work.
