It is intended for formative feedback between an instructor and learner at any level of adult learning and can be used in a variety of healthcare disciplines involving a wide range of educational clinical experiences.

The FACE is based on an extensive review of theory, literature and content expertise from the fields of education, organizational behavior, industrial psychology, sociology and health sciences. It is grounded in multidisciplinary feedback principles and clinical education theory.
