What is STAN?
A way of training where practical activity is focused, limited and standardised.
Why are we using it?
Some of these principles come from a technique (mastery learning) that has a large evidence base showing it to be more effective than traditional training.
What do I need to do?
- Let the new start trainees do the ‘one skill’ of the day on the patients on your list.
- Give them feedback based on the ‘measures that define success’ for the skill.
- Feedback needs to happen every time they perform the skill with you.
