Inaugural Anaesthetic Trainee Symposium, Royal North Shore Hospital
February 21st 2020. Invited speaker at the inaugural symposium for Anaesthetic Trainees at the Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney, NSW.
Talk title: “It takes two to train an anaesthetist”.
Description: Traineeships are opportunities for trainees to learn (take advice) and for consultants to be learned from (give advice). This talk introduces the audience to the psychology of advice giving and taking. What factors influence trainees’ willingness and ability to take advice? How does the behaviour of the advisor shape trainee receptiveness to feedback, and what can trainees do to prepare themselves better to receive feedback?
