This interactive skills-based workshop focuses on developing a strong culture for learning, delivering effective feedback and dealing with trainees in difficulty. It includes trigger videos, group discussions and opportunities to practise feedback skills.
This workshop explores supervision in the healthcare setting. The main themes of the workshop include dealing with the many challenges supervisors face, such as: lack of time, pressure from the increasing number of trainees, and balancing service commitments with teaching of trainees and medical students at varying levels. This workshop then focuses on a range of teaching multi-level groups, and strategies to help trainees improve their communication such as questioning techniques and the importance of role modelling.
This workshop provides insights into effective work-based learning and assessment. The workshop covers goal setting, gathering evidence about trainees using the PREP tools and using this evidence to give the trainee feedback on their performance. The challenges for supervisors to integrate work-based learning and assessment into the workflow are addressed along with practical strategies that can be used to help this become part of practice.
