Improving residency training with the help of multisource feedback: Generation of a model of influencing factors. In: An international Association for Medical Education (AMEE) Conference 2015. Glasgow. 06.-09.09.2015.

Background: Feedback is considered to be one of the
most important drivers of learning. One form of
structured feedback used in medical settings is
multisource feedback (MSF). This feedback technique
provides the opportunity to gain a differentiated view
on a doctor’s performance from several perspectives
using a questionnaire and a facilitating conversation, in
which learning goals are formulated. While many
studies have been conducted on the validity, reliability
and feasibility of the instrument, little is known about
the impact of factors that might influence the effects
of MSF on clinical performance.
Summary of Work: To study under which
circumstances MSF is most effective, we performed a
literature review on Google Scholar with focus on MSF
and feedback in general. Main key-words were: MSF,
multi-source-feedback, multi source feedback, and
feedback each combined with influencing/ hindering/
facilitating factors, effective, effectiveness, doctors-intraining,
and surgery.
Summary of Results: Based on the literature, we
developed a preliminary model of facilitating factors.
This model includes five main factors influencing MSF:
questionnaire, doctor-in-training, group of raters,
facilitating supervisor, and facilitating conversation.
Discussion and Conclusions: Especially the following
points that might influence MSF have not yet been
sufficiently studied: facilitating conversation with the
supervisor, individual aspects of doctors-in-training,
and the causal relations between influencing factors.
Overall there are only very few studies focusing on the
impact of MSF on actual and long-term performance.
We developed a preliminary model of hindering and
facilitating factors on MSF. Further studies are needed
to better understand under which circumstances MSF
is most effective.
Take-home messages: The preliminary model might
help to guide further studies on how to implement
MSF to use it at its full potential.
