Good trainers seek feedback – the ISCP website is the FST recommended tool

18th August 2020 at 19:00 BST


An ISCP survey indicates that the use of the ISCP Trainer Area is low. Some say that they do not have the time and others feel that the system is difficult to use. This webinar will steer you through the area and highlight the feedback tools available to the trainer. An FST Executive member shared their reservations but was pleasantly surprised by the accessibility and usefulness.

Aims and learning outcomes

The aim is to improve the recognition and use of the ISCP site by surgical trainers.

At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  1. Complete their trainer profile
  2. Find and review the profiles of other trainers
  3. Access feedback already available
  4. Maximise for appraisal and job planning
