journal contributionposted on 2023-01-23, 16:53 authored by Pauline JoycePauline Joyce
Investing time in mastering the feedback process is an important skill for all faculty. With physician assistant (PA) programs growing rapidly worldwide, faculty need to devote time to the education theory behind the feedback process. Within the clinical area, feedback is an everyday occurrence for PAs. However, ensuring that the process of giving feedback reaps dividends, ie, closes the feedback loop and ensures that learning and change of behavior have occurred, requires an understanding of what theories and models have already been tested with students. This article focuses on key principles of providing feedback and uses an example of a model of feedback, which highlights the challenges. An application to practice of the principles and model used as examples is provided, with a focus on self and peer feedback.
