TALK is designed to guide structured team self-debriefing after any learning event in clinical environments.  It promotes a supportive culture of learning and patient safety.  

The World Health Organisation recommends clinical debriefing for team reflection after tasks, shifts or events. Clinical debriefing is a team conversation about what has happened during a case. Any aspects of patient care may be discussed and everybody's perspective matters.

Our underlying drive is to promote guided reflection within teams as a way to improve and maintain patient safety, increase efficiency and contribute to a supportive culture of dialogue and learning in any clinical environment.
