Background/context HILS have been using video debriefing in simulation since our centre opened, yet have noticed a variability of faculty success in using it.

In an attempt to uncover best practise, the technical team set out to document the effective use of bookmarks in video debriefing during a 15 day mandatory simulation course for Junior Doctors.

Description of innovation or topic The Technical Team recorded the following:

  • The number of total bookmarks made per scenario

  • The number of bookmarks actually used in each debriefing

  • Whether the use of the video bookmark was successful or not

  • Comments on communication between technician and debriefer

Improvements/outcomes (anticipated or recorded) With immediate effect, there were obvious techniques which resulted in differences between the debriefing of scenarios such as

  • Whether bookmarks where identified with number, time or text description

  • Whether bookmarks were used from printed paper or from onscreen menus

  • When the data is analysed, we also expect to find

  • An increase in the number of ‘good’ bookmarks used over time from individual debriefers

  • No correlation between number of bookmarks made, and bookmarks used

Take home messages

  • There are subtle improvements that can be made to improve the effectiveness of using video in a debriefing

  • There is a wide variation in the use of video debriefing1
