Feedback questions – Examples

These are some examples of feedback questions that invite open dialogue (keeping in mind that a supportive tone is very important) [1]:

  • How did that go for you?
  • What was your impression of how that went for the client/patient?
  • What did you find the most challenging about that interaction?
  • What were you the most happy with about that interaction?
  • What sorts of interventions have you tried in that situation?
  • What has been useful? What about not helpful?
  • Before we get into my comments, do you have any questions related to this case that you would like me to answer?
