This workshop will introduce participants to the specific skills associated with teaching procedures.

The workshop will incorporate didactic points about teaching procedures and offer opportunities for the participants to practice.

At the end of the workshop participants will be able to:

  • Translate the six steps of curriculum development into procedure teaching
  • Describe the conceptual framework of deliberative practice as it applies to teaching procedures
  • Demonstrate the conceptual framework by simulating procedure education
  • Give effective feedback on learning performance in a real-time patient-care setting
  • Establish a reasonable set of targets related to the workshop objectives by completing an Educational Action Plan form.
  • Gather learner feedback about performance of the new teaching skills acquired in the workshop, using a performance-assessment tool.
