Upcoming Academy Interest Group Symposia 

Feedback and Evaluation Symposium- Barriers to Effective Evaluation and Feedback

 Wednesday February 25, 2015 - 3:30-5:00 pm Room TBA
Keith Baker MD, PhD, Gene Beresin MD MA, Mary Ellen Goldhamer MD, MPH 
 
 

Overview:

This 2 hour session will utilize lecture, audience response and small group discussion techniques to address elements of effective evaluation and feedback as well as barriers to delivering effective feedback.  The plenary lecture will provide an overview of evaluation and feedback and will address the factors that determine whether an individual perceives feedback as either threatening or helpful.  The importance of holding a learning orientation to construe feedback as helpful will be demonstrated.  In addition, strategies to enhance an individual’s learning orientation will be discussed. 

The second part of the symposium will address barriers to delivering effective evaluation and feedback.  Participants will offer examples of the barriers that they encounter and these barriers will be compared to those found in the literature.  The participants will then discuss a series of real cases from our medical education system, which demonstrate various barriers to effective feedback and evaluation.  Finally, the participants will be educated on two specific strategies (mental contrasting and implementation intensions) for overcoming a barrier.  Each participant will have an opportunity to create their own custom version of these strategies to overcome the single largest barrier that they encounter when giving feedback.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss a series of real cases from our medical education system, which demonstrate various barriers to effective feedback and evaluation. 
  • Develop two specific strategies (mental contrasting and implementation intensions) for overcoming a barrier. 
  • Create a custom version of strategies to overcome the single largest barrier that one encounters when giving feedback.
