ABSTRACT
Background: Debriefing is a structured way for trainees to reflect on action, offering a reality, a way to see through their own eyes, the trainers’ and their peers’ eyes. Debriefing is an essential aspect of simulation, which should receive as much attention as the resolution of the scenario. A tool to assess the quality of the debriefing from the trainee’s perspective is important for research and the continuous quality improvement. Objectives: To construct and validate a simulation debriefing assessment scale. Methodology: Methodological research study. A list of 50 items was developed based on the literature review and the researchers’ experience, and applied as a questionnaire to 209 students of a Bachelor Degree in Nursing. Results: After the analysis of the answers, a 34-item scale was designed, with high internal consistency (Alpha = 0.899). The factor analysis suggested a 3-factor solution, all of which with factors showing high Alpha values and rational significance. Conclusion: The final version of the scale showed good psychometric properties with potential for use in future studies.
