Teaching at the bedside with live patients in real time can be a powerful learning experience; however, fast-paced clinical settings, time constraints and lack of confidence can be a deterrent to using this methodology for some educators. Current research shows that educating healthcare providers about the importance of bedside teaching and providing them with practical essentials would foster effective bedside teaching and promote a conducive learning climate. This workshop, taught in tandem with a clinical educator and a curriculum developer, will highlight techniques to create a positive, effective learning experience and offer insights from senior clinical educators about how they implement these techniques in their setting. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss their own bedside teaching successes and struggles and collaborate with the session leaders on how to enhance their teaching practice

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Identify the purpose of bedside teaching.
2. Recognize effective bedside teaching strategies.
3. Discuss how to implement these strategies in your setting.
