Medical trainees have a 3-fold role as providers, teachers, and learners. Yet there is a paucity of electronic tools to help residents improve or facilitate their teaching style. In this presentation we will describe a pilot to use problem-based electronic teaching nudges integrated into an electronic rounding tool to remind residents to teach during rounds. We will present the qualitative results of this study along with lessons learned for future initiatives.

Describe the new knowledge and additional skills the participant will gain after attending your presentation.: The goal of this presentation is to share the results of a QI initiative conducted to use electronic teaching nudges in a digital workflow tool to enhance the learning and teaching experience on clinical rounds. Attendees will learn how to incorporate digital tools into their clinical teaching workflow in a way that complements their existing teaching style. This will also hopefully serve as a foundation for future research and technology design geared toward education.
