Skills-based Workshop

Giving Feedback: Transforming Self to Transform Others & Interprofessional Cultures

Monday, August 19, 2019, 10:15 am - 11:15 am
Greenway B Room
Theme: Optimizing the Interprofessional Clinical Learning Environment

Workshop Description:
The role of feedback in teamwork is paradoxical. While feedback is a critical component of developing and sustaining teamwork, it is also one of the most uncomfortable responsibilities that we have as individual team members, educators, or leaders. Feedback conversations can stimulate higher levels of thinking, contribute to deeper learning, and impact future performance in teams. However, opportunities for developing, refining and evaluating such skills are few. This one-hour workshop will engage participants in deliberate practice learning how to give feedback in interprofessional settings and discuss techniques for evaluating the quality of feedback.

Learner Outcomes:
1) Participants will discuss key concepts to consider when giving feedback on feedback to interprofessional students or providers
2) Participants will learn how to use the Pre-Think Chart and the “Feedback Rubric” in preparation for giving feedback interprofessional students or providers
3) Participants will practice giving feedback on feedback to interprofessional educators

Intended Outcomes/Impact on Field:
As attendees of the Nexus Summit are being positioned to lead IPE activities in their own institutions, this workshop highlights the important role of feedback in IPE and provides tools for effective feedback.

This workshop is polished and has been given for the last three years at the Society for Simulation in Healthcare international conference, as well as conferences in Australia, with extremely positive responses toward impact on practice. The workshop is comprised of snippets of education and activities from a 6-week (3 university unit credit) intense online Feedback Course offered at the Center for Medical Simulation. Program Evaluation from the course indicates that the concepts and activities presented in this workshop are transformative and applicable to individual practice, extending into other unintended areas of daily life.
