Abstract

Written feedback in the clinical setting is a valuable learning tool for midwifery students, offering information about current and expected practice, to improve future performance.

The aim of this Phenomenological study was to describe the experiences of nineteen midwives and thirteen midwifery students in completing written feedback using a mix of focus groups and individual interviews.

Three main themes of emotions, challenges and solutions emerged from thematic analysis of the data.

The findings have the potential to inform future preceptorship and feedback training for staff, as well as organisational workload considerations to increase the effectiveness of feedback provided.
