Feedback update and the complexities of inter-speciality conversations. St Emlyn’s

Feedback is something that we are really interested in at St Emlyn’s. We pride ourselves on managing feedback well, both in education where the St Emlyn’s team has a culture of honest and open feedback (particularly when preparing presentations), and also in our clinical practice.

In this podcast Simon and Natalie review some of the principles of feedback with a particular focus on the complexities of feedback between departments.

The book we mention in the podcast, and which we would recommend a read is ‘Thanks for the Feedback’ by Stone and Heen. It’s also available as an audiobook and on Blinkist (which Simon uses a lot).
