Maximising the effects of feedback in regional emergency medicine

Grant ID: EMEG-015R37-2022-PRASAD

Project Summary

Feedback improves performance. Yet establishing effective feedback practices in emergency medicine (EM) is challenging. Supervisors need to balance delivering patient care with delivering feedback in fast-paced environments. These challenges are particularly burdensome in regional settings where the workforce is less experienced, and teams are less established.

To resolve this challenge, efforts are often directed towards developing supervisors’ feedback skills. Yet with the challenges experienced by regional EM supervisors, the model of ‘supervisor driving feedback’ is inefficient. What has been overlooked is developing trainees as active participants in feedback practices. Evidence suggests that this approach may improve feedback practices in EM and offers a way to alleviate the feedback burden experienced by EM supervisors in regional settings.
