To sum up

This module has considered the role of feedback in the way in which health professionals develop confidence and competence. Feedback is vital for learning, both from external sources as well as in the development of accurate self-assessment skills. Whilst much of the focus on feedback is as part of formal or summative assessments (which in themselves can be improved), this module highlights that the most effective feedback is embedded into day-to-day practice and professional conversations, is forward-facing and forms part of a culture of feedback and learning.
