Summary:
Psychological safety refers to “showing one’s self without fear of negative consequences to self-image, status or career” (Kahn, 1990).  It is critical for optimal performance by all involved in OSCEs.  For example, learners cannot be too anxious to ask sensitive questions, simulated/standardized patients must not avoid portraying scripted emotions, and observing faculty cannot hesitate to evaluate accurately because of fear of being judged unfairly.  Through several reflection exercises this interactive masterclass will analyze various threats to psychological safety in OSCEs, and participants will develop prevention and management strategies by sharing experiences and exploring new ideas.
