Thanks, Coach!  Tearing down the barriers to effective feedback

view recorded presentation
Kristen Atkins, MD
Director of Anatomic Pathology
University of Virginia
Charlottesville, Virginia 

Learning objectives: 

  • Identify the 3 common roadblocks to receiving meaningful feedback
  • Utilize skills for taking negative emotion out of received feedback (even when the feedback is good!)
  • Align type of feedback given with the purpose/intent of the feedback

Kristen Atkins is the director of anatomic pathology at the University of Virginia.  More importantly she is the survivor of horrible residency program scores for effective feedback, awkward interactions with colleagues, and is a recovering self-flagellator for not doing life perfectly.  After taking several courses on feedback in 2015, Dr. Atkins became obsessed with feedback giving and receiving and has led professional book clubs and presented workshops within her university and nationally.  Per Dr. Atkins, “This session should resonate with all participants because feedback is happening constantly in all parts of our life.  Being aware of a few principles can make you a better deliverer and receiver of feedback. ”
