Abstract

Background: Competent debriefers are essential to promote positive learner outcomes. While important, providing training to faculty may be difficult. The Train-The-Trainer (TTT) model is a successful approach for efficiently training large groups of individuals. Methods: This study used a purposive, descriptive research design to test the feasibility and effectiveness of a TTT program for teaching debriefers how to implement and train others to use Debriefing for Meaningful Learning (DML). Results: With training, assessment, and individualized feedback, trainers and trainees alike improved their ability to use DML, as well as self-assess their debriefing. Conclusion: The TTT program was a successful, feasible, cost-effective way to provide DML training.
