Presenting at the Nexus Summit:
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…
Workshop Description:How do I debrief learners from other professions? How do I not single out one profession if a person did not do well in the simulation? Healthcare simulation has been increasingly adopted and integrated into curricula as an effective platform for IPE because of what we know in adult learning, experiential learning, deliberate practice, and feedback. Debriefing – the learning conversation post a simulation experience – is the heart of simulation. Faculty development on how to debrief interprofessional teams is necessary. This session will discuss challenges and practice…
