Clinicians who serve as educators are required to evaluate the competency of learners and to provide them with feedback that improves their performance. This self-paced, online module provides the background and tools to accomplish both roles. Registrants should expect to spend about 1.5 – 2.0 hours to complete the entire module. The module can be completed in parts over any period of time. A brief video ( describes the organization of the module.


Participants will be able to…

… compare similarities and contrast differences between evaluation and feedback.

… relate elements of a feedback conversation to the “feedback with good judgment” model.
