“Debriefing ideally creates a space where we can reflect on what went well and we need to consciously repeat again in the future, and what were the challenges and things we consciously would change in the future. Debriefing also allows us to acknowledge any confronting scenes or emotions that need to be normalised and shared” - (Dr) Liz Crowe
Understanding and acknowledging the importance of preparing for and delivering critical incident debriefing (CID), the college together with the Trainee Wellbeing Project Group (TWPG) has undertaken to develop a suite of informed, accessible and diverse training resources for fellows and trainees during and following critical incidents.

What to expect from the toolkit
The toolkit has been structured into two sections.
The first section is composed of three main categories (or tabs):
Within each category you will find journal articles, fact sheets, podcasts and videos, websites, and how-to and explanatory documents.
The final section (tab) is the collected additional resources - which can be found on the other tabs - divided into the following themes:
These resources are predominantly multimedia resources with some supporting websites and articles.
