  • “Workplace Assessment” Key Messages:
    • Assessment in the setting of clinical training is not well developed, but methods based on observation of routine encounters offer a rich and feasible alternative.
    • A framework for assessment based on observation has two dimensions: the grounds on which judgments are made (Single encounter routine performance) and the nature of the judgments themselves (occurrence, quality, or sustainability).
    • Tools such as the mini-CEX, DOPS, CbD, and mini-PAT offer valid assessment
    • Faculty Development is a key to the successful use of methods.
    • The opportunity for education feedback as part of these methods is as important as their contribution to the assessment process
