Diagnostic Challenge: Facilitators

Facilitator Documents - forms, checklists and docs  

Wizard of Oz and the wizard behind the curtain  The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.
                              --Mark Van Doren

Welcome to the facilitator page. Below you will find all the need information, forms, links, and check lists. It is broken down into subcategories to assist in finding the needed material in an organized fashion. The Diagnostic Challenge has been a great success because of dedicated people as yourself. Thank you for taking the time out of your already busy schedule to help shape our young minds and to be the "wizard behind the curtain."

We're almost done, but there are still a number of tasks that need attention to bring the exercise to a close and make sure the case you facilitated is left in good condition for the next time it is used.

      Final Check List (printable version)

      1. Complete all required evaluations and feedback forms:
      2. Organize your students' DC Medical Records for archival purposes. 

          Including their presentation handout and literature search.

      3. Update and organize your case to be used again

          See this link on Final Disposition of DC Case and case record for details. The goal is to leave the record so that it looks and works like you'd like to receive it if you were facilitating the case NEXT TIME.

            Facilitator comments - "Notes for Next Time": This is HUGE and needs to be completed!

      4. Return all material (Case material, case record, your client's DC Client Handbook, Student DC medical records, and all other material)

          Bring all material to Rachel Halsey before the end of the year (December 2013)

      5. Sign WSU paperwork for travel reimbursement and honorarium See Rachel Halsey in Bustad 402
      6. Prepare for facilitator debriefing meeting - Thoughts on your case, client, students, exercise, element of the DC, etc.

          If, by chance, you are leaving time before the facilitators meet, be sure to communicate your impressions and recommendation to your co-facilitator and/or Steve/Rachel before you leave.

      NEEDED Forms to be submitted:

        Client's evaluation of each clinic - If you don't have it, just assume that the students received ALL the client points and proceed.  We can deduct points later is necessary, but students usually get all the client evaluation points.

        Student's Evaluation of DC (and their classmates presentation)

        • Typically provided as hard copies at DC Grand Rounds, students hand these in after the exercise
        • This is also the form they use to score their peers for the 5 peer points
        • If you want, you can hand these out (1 per student) at the Debriefing session
