Title: With great power comes great responsibility: Designing assessment systems to meet many needs

Presenter: Dr. Kevin Eva, University of British Columbia

Time:  10:00am (via Zoom)
 

Brief Overview:
As health professional educators we have an obligation to protect patients from substandard and unsafe care. It can be counterproductive in that regard, however, to enforce high stakes and rigorous assessment practices given that engagement can be expected to be a key determinant of continuing competence. To achieve a successful balance requires coordination across levels of training and practice. In this talk we will explore how well-developed programs of assessment, coordinated across the continuum, may serve to improve physician learning and support healthcare without sacrificing wellness or undermining motivation. Learning Objectives: Participants will be asked to: 1. Review a number of tensions present in our assessment/education practices; 2. Consider the double edged nature of performance data provision; 3. Imagine how we might continue to evolve Canadian assessment systems in ways that support the principles of normalized processes and shared accountability
