Standards of best practice: Simulation standard IV: Facilitation
Multiple methods of facilitation are available, and use of a specific method is dependent on the learning needs of the participant(s) and the expected outcomes. Facilitation methods should vary, keeping in mind that participants bring cultural and individual differences that affect their knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors. Facilitation assists participants to meet the objectives by incorporating their needs and experience level into the planning and implementation of a simulation-based learning experience. Facilitators use feedback or debriefing to help participants meet the objectives and expected outcomes. Facilitation should be appropriate to the participants' level of learning and experience and be theoretically based using best practices.
