  • FOCAL - Feedback on clinical achievements @ Liverpool

    1. 1. FOCAL Feedback On ClinicalAchievements @ Liverpool Denis Duret (dduret@liv.ac.uk) & Avril Senior (avrils@liv.ac.uk)
    2. 2. Why/how did we start?• Improving the feedback to the students (National Student Survey)• Inspired by the School of Dentistry (LIFTUPP project) . Staff use an iPad to assess and capture the performance of a student.• See what an iPad could do for us! So we applied to the Research & Development Sub-Group and were successful!
    3. 3. Clinical Rotation (CR) - Timeline Summative Summative Summative Week 1 Assessment Week 2 Assessment Week 3 AssessmentMon Tues Wed Thurs Fri Mon Tues Wed Thurs Fri Mon Tues Wed Thurs Fri Group A1 Group A1 Group A1 Formative Formative Formative Assessment Assessment Assessment Group A1 Group A1 Group A1 Summative Summative Summative Cardiology Assessment Assessment Assessment Front line skills - Imaging Small animal practice: 1st opinion
    4. 4. The Project
    5. 5. Version 1 - Cardiology
    6. 6. Feedback ( Students)• How did this affect your performance during the rotation Few said that “it helped to identify learning objectives” but most people said “Made no difference”• How does it compare with the feedback you have received in other rotation Better/More than others• What would you change to improve that pilot project “May be give more feedback not just tick boxes”
    7. 7. Feedback ( Staff)• Could you comment on how this project affected your work? “When the clinics were not busy, it helped assessment of practical tasks but if busy ….”• Do you think that it allowed you to give more feedback? “Yes – Especially for practical tasks”• What would you change to improve that pilot project “Change the assessment/feedback form”
    8. 8. Version 2 - Imaging
    9. 9. Feedback ( Students)• How did this affect your performance during the rotation “Helped to see where you could improve” “It gave me an idea of how I was doing”• How does it compare with the feedback you have received in other rotation “Nice to have midweek feedback” “Better than nothing but I prefer oral feedback”• What would you change to improve that pilot project “Has to be meaningful and personal otherwise not worth doing”
    10. 10. Feedback ( Staff)• Could you comment on how this project affected your work? “Improved quality of assessment. Fast + efficient”• Do you think that it allowed you to give more feedback? “Yes – the midweek was very useful as students can improve”• What would you change to improve that pilot project “Keep the iPad for the entire week”
    11. 11. Version 3 – SA Practice
    12. 12. Feedback ( Students)• How did this affect your performance during the rotation “Positively – Very useful to have part to improve on” “It reassured me that I was doing ok and increased my confidence”• How does it compare with the feedback you have received in other rotation “Much more directed to oneself” “It was more thorough than previous feedback”• What would you change to improve that pilot project “Other than actually sit down & Chat. Nothing”
    13. 13. Feedback ( Staff)• Could you comment on how this project affected your work? “I felt the iPad was much easier and quicker to provide feedback than individually writing out, naming and dating the traditional hard copy”• Do you think that it allowed you to give more feedback? “I think it allows far more broad feedback. We often give feedback as going along but students do not often see this as feedback”• What would you change to improve that pilot project “Nothing”
    14. 14. Version 4 (Resit)• How did this affect your performance during the rotation “Was good to have feedback” “I thought it was useful”• How does it compare with the feedback you have received in other rotation “Better” “Mixed feedback in other rotations so it was helpful to know progress”• What would you change to improve that pilot project “Encourage member staff to use this system”
    15. 15. Why/how did we start?• Improving the feedback to the students (National Student Survey)• Inspired by the School of Dentistry (LIFTUPP project) . Staff use an iPad to assess and capture the performance of a student.• See what an iPad could do for us!
    16. 16. Recommendations & Future development• Use tailor-made assessment form• Improve consistency between rotation• Identify rotations where iPad could be used• Work with FormConnection for a better App
    17. 17. Conclusion• It has improved students’ performance• Great technology is invisible Steve Jobs – June 1995
