    The Art of Debriefing

    Presented by:
    Edward Bope, MD, Family Medicine Residency Program Director, Riverside Methodist Hospital, Columbus Ohio and Clinical Professor, Department of Family Medicine, Ohio State University.

    It is well established that the most important and useful learning experience during medical education is receiving timely feedback. This is especially true about performance in the clinical setting. In their evaluations of the clinical rotations, students and residents frequently identify the lack of feedback as an area of weakness. Debriefing is a well-defined skill that can be effectively applied in the clinical setting during rounds, or at the mid and end point of the rotation. Debriefing is also an essential skill for faculty to develop when teaching individuals and teams in the Simulation Center or other performance based venues.The focus of this month's presentation is to prepare faculty to feel more comfortable with using debriefing as an important teaching method.
