MSF Debrief Instructional Scenarios

Debriefing is an essential element of the multi-source feedback process. Once a candidate receives their report, a debrief supports the candidate to ‘unpack’, understand and interpret the feedback.

Formal debriefing is a valuable and confidential consultation that allows you to take your report feedback further. A qualified member of the CFEP Surveys Team and the candidate work through their report findings together, to discuss the feedback and plans to support quality improvements.

The following videos represent two scenarios commonly encountered during the debriefing session. Both scenarios utilise the R2C2 model to analyse the results and interpret the insights. Session one focuses on the candidate receiving excellent feedback while the second scenario works through negative or challenging feedback.

Take your time to review these two valuable sessions for a clear understanding of the R2C2 model in action during a formal MSF debrief.

Scenario 1 - Receiving Excellent Feedback

Duration: 33 minutes

Scenario 2 - Receiving Challenging Feedback

Duration: 38 minutes

Medical Board of Australia's Professional Performance Framework Requirements

The Medical Board of Australia has developed their Professional Performance Framework to help clinicians achieve greater competency in their work.

The framework contains five pillars to support doctors through this professional development initiative, including the ‘Strengthened Continuing Professional Development‘ pillar.

CFEP Surveys’ Multi-Source Feedback Tool allows clinicians to obtain 360-degree feedback to provide unique insight into their performance as a medical professional. This closely aligns with the initiative of the Medical Board’s plan and offers up to 66% of the annual CPD requirements under the Professional Performance Framework.

Additionally, medical professionals are required to annually submit a professional development plan (PDP) as part of the MBA Framework. Completing CFEP Surveys’ MSF allows clinicians to undertake the following activities that are vital in creating robust and actionable PDP:

  • Collect patient, colleague & peer feedback
  • Undertake a period of self-assessment
  • Gain insights into your own professional behaviour and performance, and
  • Identify areas of strength & professional development opportunities.
