Article: The shift from disbelieving underperformance to recognising failure: A tipping point model
How do medical educators recognize when a resident is unlikely to succeed? What are the risk factors that usher us to the tipping point at which we must use that ugly four-letter “F” word–“Fail”? In this qualitative study, we explore the various aspects of a resident’s performance that supervisors use to cross the tipping point from disbelieving underperformance to recognizing failure.
