Workplace Based Assessment Tools

Description


The course is intended to have multiple modules for each of the WBA tools. Each module will give an overview of the tool, and tips on how best to utilize them or fill them out. The modules will be added as we progress over the next few months. Two initial modules are the CBD and Mini-CEX. We have selected these two modules as they are currently either misused or underutilized by residents and faculty in the various programs.


Objectives

  • Recognize the differences between the various workplace based assessment tools.

  • Identify why and when to use the various WBA tools.

  • Use the WBA tools appropriately.

  • Overcome problems related to WBA process.

Developing Faculty Competencies in Assessment

The OMSB-ACGME Faculty Development Course is a 3-day program on assessment for faculty from across OMSB programs who teach GFP trainees, residents and fellows across different specialties. The goal of this course is to provide attendees with the essential skills to be able to assess and provide feedback to trainees.

It is crucial for faculty to have a shared mental model on assessment criteria and expectations. Furthermore, faculty should have a shared understanding of the data required from multiple sources in order to consolidate and make performance judgments (sometimes without having worked with the trainee). The course will equip faculty with the skills required for assessment through a mix of lectures, workshops, and practical hands-on experience.


Course objectives:

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

1.   Discuss the implications of competency based medical education

2.   Employ tools for effective assessment and feedback

3.   Understand and apply techniques to improve direct observation

4.   Identify skills to run effective Clinical Competency Committee (CCC) meetings
