Teaching on the run

Teaching on the run tips 5: teaching a skill

Med J Aust 2004; 181 (6): 327-328.

Setting

You are a registrar with a new intern who has had little experience with arterial puncture for blood gas analysis. You show her how to do one, then suggest she’ll get practice when on call that night. She could even show the medical student how to do them, so he can help out.
