About This Episode

Eileen Klein, MD, MPH, Professor, Division of Emergency Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, University of Washington School of Medicine.

Most of us have had difficult conversations with learners about professionalism or concerns about delivery of clinical care. These are often stressful for faculty and learners alike and it can be tempting to avoid giving constructive feedback altogether. In this podcast, Dr. Eileen Klein explains how giving constructive feedback can be seen as an opportunity to demonstrate caring for learners – and patients – and provides a model for giving timely and effective feedback.
