Simulation-based education provides the transfer of the theoretical and practical knowledge gained in the learning environment to the clinical environment. Learning in a clinical simulation takes place in debriefing. Accordingly, debriefing is the main component of clinical simulation. Debriefing is conducted under the management of a facilitator and is an activity performed after the simulation. Debriefing facilitates participants’ critical thinking through reflective thinking. The primary goal in performing a debriefing is to allow facilitators and participants to participate in and reflect on the simulated clinical experience. There are various models used to facilitate the information-sharing process in a debriefing. Several models have been proposed for discussions after simulation, which have been categorized as three-phase, multiphase, and other debriefing models and frameworks. In this review, the importance and methods of debriefing in simulation-based education are discussed
