Title: To Entrust or Not to Entrust, that’s the Competence Question!

Presenter: Dr. Carlos Gomez-Garibello, McGill University

Time:  10:00am

Location:  via Zoom 

Overview: Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) have been accepted as a way to assess learners in clinical settings. Clinical supervisors perceive EPAs to be intuitive and well representative of the type of interactions they have with learners. EPAs rely on assessors making entrustment decisions. This judgement decision is becoming central to workplace-based assessment given the pervasiveness of EPAs. Yet, little has been discussed about the ways in which these judgements are made, how learners perceive feedback coming from entrustment decisions, and most importantly, how judgements on learners’ entrustment fully capture learners’ competence. During the webinar we will explore different aspects related to these issues, and will also discuss the main challenges that both assessors and learners experience when using assessment of EPAs. Finally, we will discuss various ways to articulate the relationship between judgments of entrustment and competence.

Objectives:
By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
1. Describe the commonalities and differences between judgements of entrustment and judgements of competence.
2. Explain the salient aspects that affect entrustment decisions.
3. Discuss the challenges that clinical supervisors and learners experience when conducting assessment based on EPAs.
