Strategies to Provide Constructive Feedback to Students: Re-framing in Quality and Safety Language
Receiving constructive feedback as a student and nurse is essential for personal and professional growth but for faculty, delivering feedback to students while continuing to nurture the student-teacher relationship can be difficult, especially because it has been identified as a trigger for incivility. Changing students’ perception of feedback is essential to having them accept it. Faculty play a significant role in modeling feedback delivery. Nurse educators not only need to develop skills to deliver feedback effectively, but need to teach students how to give and receive constructive feedback to fulfill their nursing responsibilities. This presentation demonstrates evidence-based strategies to frame feedback in quality and safety language so that it can be viewed as an opportunity for improvement.
