Remediation is often a feared topic among trainers and trainees alike. While it can be a time and energy consuming process, adequate preparation for and a skillful approach to remediation and trainee skill deficits in general can lead to favorable outcomes for all involved. This program will provide information about ways training programs can set the stage for favorable outcomes by making sure policies are carefully determined, clearly communicated, culturally sensitive, and consider the requirements of all stakeholders. Important considerations in supervision related to the delivery of challenging feedback will also be discussed including how to determine a concern needs to be elevated to the level of formal remediation.
Given the importance of the actual remediation documents, there will be a focus on writing and delivering remediation plans and other related documentation, and sample plans will be distributed. Related topics of communicating with stakeholders, dealing with ruptures in the supervisory relationship, how and where to consult, and taking care of other trainees and the training staff, as well as self-care will be discussed. Participants will have an opportunity to interact with the material both through a brief, real-time survey, by asking questions, and by applying knowledge to several training vignettes.
After attending this intermediate-level presentation, participants will be able to:
1.Participants will be able to assess their own training programs to ensure they have the appropriate infrastructure to support future remediation efforts.
2. Participants will identify indicators a trainee’s competence may warrant remediation.
3. Participants will be able to list the critical components of a successful remediation plan.
4. Participants will be able to list key stakeholders in the remediation process.
5. Participants will be able to describe the importance of caring for all impacted by the remedial process including the necessity of self-care.
