In the first week of December, we sent notices to the registrants who were selected to meet their multisource feedback requirements in 2018. If you were selected, please note that multisource feedback opens Jan. 3, 2018. You can start multisource feedback after you renew your registration.
You have 30 days to collect feedback from the day you renew your registration.
Multisource feedback is one way to help you identify where to focus your professional development via confidential feedback, presented in a comprehensive report.
Multisource feedback is a central feature of
My Professional Plan, a CRNBC web app that helps you manage your quality assurance requirements and professional development plans more effectively, all in one convenient place.
My Professional Plan is currently only accessible to nurses participating in the multisource feedback process.
My Professional Plan, nurses will request and receive confidential feedback from their colleagues in three easy steps:
All feedback is confidential. Nurses will not be able to identify their colleagues' individual feedback.
Note that nurses are encouraged to invite both nurse and non-nurse colleagues to provide feedback on their practice.
Beginning in 2018, nurses will be asked to invite a number of colleagues every five years to provide feedback via a questionnaire and receive a multisource feedback report. Between each five-year requirement, nurses are expected to
independently gather colleague feedback as part of their
annual quality assurance requirements.
Multisource feedback is being used more and more by health regulators around the world. Research indicates that healthcare professionals benefit from receiving confidential, structured feedback from their colleagues and in some cases, clients, particularly when this feedback is combined with coaching and self-reflection.
Multisource feedback also helps nurses in their professional development and self-regulation, by making formalized feedback from peers and others available, and generating opportunities for the nurses to improve their practice and meet high practice standards.
Your personalized multisource feedback report can help you:
By participating in more rigorous quality assurance activities like multisource feedback, nurses demonstrate to the public and other health professionals their commitment to quality improvement, accountability and ongoing professional development.
