Abstract

Debriefing plays a critical role in facilitated reflection of simulation after the experiential component of simulation-based learning. The concept of framing and reflective learning in a debriefing session has emanated primarily from Western cultures. However, non-Western cultures have significant characteristics that manifest themselves in teaching and learning practices substantially different from Western cultures.We need to consider howto balance standardization in debriefingwith a culturesensitive interpretation of simulation-based learning so that learners receive the maximum benefit from debriefing sessions. Our goal was to raise awareness of cultural differences and stimulate work to make progress in this regard.
