In this report, we describe the design and delivery of an interprofessional simulation–based education (SBE) course with a novel debriefing strategy designed to facilitate the simultaneous debrief of a larger than normal number of interprofessional participants and observers. The participants and the observers were separated into two groups, with each having a facilitated learning conversation. Following on from these initial separate debriefings, the participant and observer groups were then once again combined for a successive learning conversation, in which facilitators shared and discussed approximately three key points derived from each of the groups.
