Learners will be more likely to remember things that they experience through multiple senses, so after they see a patient and listen to your teaching point, take a moment to jot down the concept on a shared piece of paper, white board, or Post-it note. Learners do not even necessarily have to be present for you to write things down; you can always leave teaching points for them to discover later or as reminders of prior conversations. Then leave them behind for the benefit of the next shift!
