“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
