A facilitated debriefing tool was developed to assist educators with debriefing groups of students after participating in an interprofessional home visit. This tool kit is intended to help faculty with structuring debriefing questions and guidelines for increasing student involvement during debriefing sessions. The tool kit contains examples of questions that can be used during an interprofessional debriefing session that focuses on teamwork, situational awareness, and reflective practice. It also provides instructors with ground rules for leading interprofessional debriefings as tips to guide conversations with students.
