This paper explores the nursing literature to identify the educative process and essential features of debriefing. The 'debrief is a common form of retrospective analysis of critical incidents in nursing and the health professions, but its potential for nurse education has not been fully recognised. Studies have failed to agree on the overall value of the technique for traumatic stress reduction --although there may be some benefits. Studies also report that brief-and-debrief techniques may enhance skills and improve the quality of patient care.
