Giving feedback is one of the most important parts of supervisory practice. It allows the learner to identify a gap in their current level of knowledge, skills or performance against a desired standard. This module aims to enhance the supervisor's ability to effectively and efficiently assess students within their professional placement setting.
The lesson is divided into two parts:
Part 1: This part introduces useful frameworks and tools (Positive Critique, TGA framework and Mini CEX) that could be used to provide effective feedback to students, particularly during routine clinical encounters. It identifies learning strategies to focus on when providing feedback and characteristics of effective feedback.
Part 2: This part addresses challenges that supervisors face when dealing with with non-routine, challenging situations – in particular, the safety of the patient being placed at risk due at least in part to the actions (or inactions) of the student. It provides guidance on when and how the supervisor should intervene and when and how feedback should be provided. Strategies to protect the patient and engage the student will be addressed.
By the end of this module, you will be able to:
