Affecting Change: Enhancing Feedback Interactions with Radiology Trainees

      Feedback is a critical part of the learning process and is a valuable tool to empower adult learners. Modern feedback theory places the learner at the center of the feedback encounter. Individual and institutional barriers to effective giving and receiving of feedback can be overcome through education and attention to the form and content of feedback. We review the elements of effective feedback and address issues of framing, environmental, and social factors which aid in providing psychological safety and trust, as necessary elements to create a culture of feedback in radiology training programs. We provide practical strategies to empower learners with the necessary skills to solicit, receive, and reflect on feedback.
