Here is a link to an overview of The One Minute Preceptor. This is a great quick and easy way of always making sure that a teaching point is made in every interaction with the learners in the clinical setting.
As a reminder, here are the steps:
- Get a Commitment
- Probe for Supporting Evidence
- Reinforce What Was Done Well
- Give Guidance About Errors and Omissions
- Teach a General Principle
It really does just take a couple of minutes when you practice it. The mistake that teachers make is getting in the habit of being too directive and just getting done with the work.
