Teaching Skills

The most commonly used method of case-based teaching is the:

One Minute Preceptor
Five Microskills for clinically based teaching*

1) Get a commitment

2) Probe for supporting evidence

3) Teach general rules

4) Reinforce what was done right

5) Correct mistakes

There are numerous examples available in the website link at the right under "videos" or "precepting". One of the best is from the "The Practical Prof" at The Alberta Rural Physician Action Plan.
