Failure to Fail: Challenges and Strategies

This interactive presentation will share results from the literature, build on participants’ personal experiences and use cases to illustrate the challenging process of working with a student whose performance is lower than expectations.  By discussing the issues from the perspectives of the clinical instructors, the institutions, and professional regulations, we hope to explore the multifactorial, complex decisions that need to be made and the consequences of inaction.  Strategies to facilitate the decision making process will also be discussed.

Cognition, Culture and Credibility: Deconstructing Feedback in Medical Education

Educators agree: learners need feedback. But what do we expect feedback to accomplish? And how is it that so often fails to resonate with learners? In this session, the individual and sociocultural influences on the success or failure of the feedback exchange in medical training will be critically examined and opportunities for meaningful progress will be explored

Exploring Enablers and Barriers to Achieving Integration: Implications for Faculty Development

Most contemporary, innovative, health care delivery models incorporate the concept of integration and integrated care. This reform strategy aims to improve efficiency, quality of care, and the patient experience. Integration efforts aim to replace fragmented care with coordinated, patient-centered care by bringing together multiple professionals, services, and organizations (cf. Tsasis, Evans, Rush and Diamond, 2013). Unfortunately, the ability for healthcare systems to provide integrated care and educational programs aimed to support such systems have not developed widely. This presentation explores the enablers and barriers to achieving integration and the educational implications integration efforts may have on the future of faculty development in health care.

Re-Imagining Reflective Practice in Health Professions Education

Applications of reflection and reflective practice have swept across health professions education (HPE) over the past decade. In the process, HPE's understanding of reflective practice has shifted from theorists' original intents. In this rounds session, we will take stock of what has been lost and found in relation to reflective practice as it was adopted into HPE. We will then re-imagine different ways forward for the continued study and application of reflective practice, keeping our sights on educating excellent health professionals for a dynamic health care system.
