Title PhD Research:
Physicians’ continuing professional development: understanding and facilitating individual and group reflection

Short description:
Giving and receiving feedback for the purpose of physicians’ performance improvement has become a general practice. The introduction of several multisource feedback systems has facilitated this practice. However, a good functioning system also entails the follow up on the obtained performance information. Responsiveness to feedback, however, is a complex phenomenon: feedback can evoke emotional reactions if it disconfirms the recipient’s self-perceptions; also (a lack of) skills and the dominant professional culture may influence this process. Therefore, facilitation of a reflective conversation is key. In this PhD-project we investigate various formats for feedback conversations.
