Article Content

In the article titled, "Debriefing in Simulated-Based Learning Facilitating a Reflective Discussion," in October-December issue of Journal of Perinatal and Neonatal Nursing, 2 corrections need to be noted as follows.


In paragraph 1 sentence 4, should be referenced to Dreifuerst, KT, in her article "The Essentials of Debriefing in Simulation Learning: A Concept Analysis," Education Perspectives, 30(2), 109-114.


In addition, a correction is warranted where the article reads, "many guidelines and strategies that are available focus on critique and correction of technical components, discussion of cognitive thinking, and attempts to develop evaluation criteria of the learner or team performance," and the sentence following which reads, "Nevertheless, questions remain on how to debrief, when to debrief, what to debrief, and whom to include in the debriefing for the best learning outcomes," should both be quoted and referenced to Dreifuerst. Please accept my sincere apology for the oversight of properly citing and giving credit to Dreifuerst.
