New to the 2020 AHA guidelines is that recommendation for performance-focused debriefing after resuscitation.

Post event debriefing = a discussion between 2 or more individuals in which aspects of performance are analyzed, with the goal of improving care.

There is evidence that shows these debrief sessions (formal and informal) resulted in improved quality of resuscitation (i.e. Increased chest compression fraction, reduced pause) in future resuscitations.
