Role Model Feedback for Your Learners

Learning how to receive feedback is a critical component of your learner’s education. By role modeling feedback, you can help help strengthen interprofessional team dynamics in the clinical setting. This can even have far-reaching implications for patient safety.

You can demonstrate an openness to feedback by explicitly inviting a learner to give you feedback. Follow this up by acting upon that feedback in a visible and meaningful way. Giving and receiving feedback is a skill that learners will gradually acquire over time as they become leaders in the profession. Through your example, you can model effective, collaborative feedback and show your learner how it can be a positive force in their own clinic.
