RANZCP 2007 Curriculum review CBFP
CBFP Implementation New Zealand Nov Australia March 2013 Formative tests: CAP. New Reg’s
Existing Registrars Grandfathered for Summative (pass/fail) Assessments
So the CBFP doesn’t affect us Right? Wrong!
HNET will be introducing Formative assessments The start of learning period Guide subsequent teaching and learning (A learning tool) One F.A. is ‘Professional Presentations’
Formative Assessments are tools to help build learning road-maps This is where you are This is your goal at the end of this training Here is how to get there
I looked at the college version! Below standard Meets standard Above standard 1. Introducing the topic u/c 2. Setting material in context u/c 3. Analysis and critique u/c 4. Presentation and delivery u/c 5. Answering questions u/c 6. Quality of educational content u/c Anything especially good?Suggestions for improvement Agreed action/goals for next presentation:

Review the literature Create a resource Design an instrument Contribute to the committee
I Did get finished, but nowhere near on time
My version reflects the literature …But is it easier to use? …Is it a better learning tool? Requires greater improveme nt Requires moderate improveme nt Requires little improveme nt Not assesse d 1. Engaging the audience u/c 2. General Presentation u/c 3. Organisation u/c 4. Content u/c
Help people learn This could be great!
But I had forgotten something
Registrars are busy
AND There is an Elephant in the Room
Reducing Anxiety Three attitudes of mind Three simple techniques
3 attitudes of mind 1.Like yourself ( be yourself, don’t try to be perfect) 2.Like your subject (focus on it) 3.Like your audience ( focus on friendly faces)
3 Simple Techniques 1.Be prepared and practiced 2.Slow breaths 3.That glass of water
And now to the point
Here it is!
How to give a talk, the short version
How DO you change this
Why is giving a memorable talk such a challenge ?
The Audience remembers little 70% of first 10 minutes 20% of the last 10 minutes Within one week 10% of what they were told
Audience attention wanes rapidly
Audience Attention Deficit Syndrome (AADS)
So to Summarize I have your attention for ten minutes You will recall little or nothing of what I say
How to deal with this? Set an exam. Short Simple core message: Flag it, introduce it, repeat it, summarise it
How to deal with this (cont.) Recapture Attention (‘reset’ the first 10 minutes) And/or Maximise Overall Attention
Reset the 10 minutes … Olivia Mitchell
Reset attention (1) Anecdotes we are hardwired to listen to stories Humour (relevant to the presentation) Transition statements ‘in summary’ or ‘so that’s the problem, I’ll now go on to address it’
Reset (2) Make breaks between subtopics clear: “So we have already talked about…” make clear Introduction /Middle /End
Reset (3) Involve the audience Q&A, small group, show of hands Take a micro-break Change anything …presenters, move a little, show a short video
Varying the reset We are also hardwired for novelty
Give them what they want! wait for sound
Tell them why it is important to them
Maximize attention (Cont.) Catchy title Drama…pauses…A paradox A logical argument
70% of audience satisfaction comes from presentation style
Try to Entertain
Show enthusiasm (Even for an ugly topic)
Much of communication is non verbal An audience given a 30 second SILENT clip of a presentation can accurately predict audience satisfaction!
A Picture says a thousand words!
Written slides are ineffective
PowerPoint what not to do!
Oh, No! PowerPoint! My eyes, my eyes!

Remember! The time spent deciphering the PowerPoint Is time spent not listening to the talk!
Power Point Rules < 6 words per line <6 lines < 4 points
Power Point Rules 2 Contrasting colours ……white on blue? Combination upper and lower case 32 or larger San serif fonts preferred : Helvetica, CG Omega, Universe, Arial.
Power Point Rules (3) Power point is a visual aide not speaker notes! Power points should make lousy handouts! (Power point has a notes page)
Power Point Rules (4) Diagrams not tables The impact of an outreach program applied to team E in the third quarter, on patient presentations 1234 E W N Make this…
….INTO THIS ! Simplify statistics. Use Graphs, not tables
No complex gimmicks to distract the audience It results in people not listening to what you say They just watch the gimmicks Beware of the laser pen!
Preparation Over Prepare, let the needs of the audience prune what you deliver Practice Delivery
Summary, or Giving a talk shortest version yet Fewer points more examples 10 minute rule Less bullet points
Summary Giving as talk the shortest version yet (cont) Technique =satisfaction Visual Audience centred, Enthusiastic
Giving a talk the final word Thankyou (It’s not a sin to finish early)
