Avoid Common Feedback Traps

We all know that giving regular and specific feedback to your learners is a critical component for clinical education. However, it is sometimes tempting to hold back on sharing feedback out of fear that the learner will be resistant or that your comments may be misunderstood. By being aware of common feedback traps, it's possible to avoid routine missteps and communicate clearly with your learner.

Productive feedback sessions require you to be sensitive to the situation as well as to the mindset of the learner.  For instance, your own fatigue or stress may adversely affect the delivery of your constructive feedback, while a defensive learner might resist even the most objective feedback that you give.

Developing a collaborative atmosphere with your learners may reduce the impact of these natural barriers to communication. Visit the Feedback Traps page to learn more about how to deliver clear and timely feedback to your learners. 

Visit the Feedback section for more tips on giving effective feedback and useful feedback models.
