Making the Most of Hot Moments in Clinical Teaching

Whether your clinical work frequently raises potentially sensitive subjects or rarely does, odds are good you will sometimes encounter a “hot moment”: a sudden eruption of tension, conflict, or big emotion during clinical teaching. This is at times connected to a heightened awareness of the social differences in a room or perhaps a result of patient behavior or at times due to the sensitive concerns unfolding with a patient. What are your choices in such a moment? And how can you take advantage of such moments as opportunities to advance trainee learning? In this interactive workshop for clinician educators of all disciplines, participants will reflect upon their own experiences of hot moments and practice applying concrete strategies for achieving their goals in the clinical environment, even when tension runs high. 
Facilitated by:
Victoria Genetin, PhD, Assistant Director - Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, CRLT
Meg Dobson, MD, Assistant Professor, Family Medicine
