What’s in an EPA?

I’ve read two interesting and practical articles about entrustable professional activities (EPAs) recently. The first article gives some great insights into how EPAs relate to each other, to training levels, and competency milestones. The second article which I came across from the KeyLime Podcast (episode 91) shares the experiences of a few Canadian Family Medicine Programs as they implemented EPAs.

There is much that the authors of the two articles agree upon. For example, both articles share a similar outlook on how competency milestones influence different levels of entrustment decisions.… Read More

one45 User Conference – October 20, 2015 – Vancouver BC

This October, one45 would like to welcome our administrators to our home city of Vancouver BC with the first annual one45 Administrator Meetup.

The one45 Administrator Meetup is a one-day conference that brings together one45 administrators from all over North America. We’ve scheduled the event to coincide with the ICRE 2015 conference, also happening in Vancouver, to give attendees a chance to attend both conferences and reduce travel costs.

What attendees will get from the meetup:

  • Receive one-on-one help from one45 experts to implement or optimize your processes
  • Get a sneak peek into our product roadmap and learn about new features
  • Receive comprehensive training on one45 (sessions for basic and advanced users)
  • Learn valuable tips and tricks on how to maximize your usage of the one45 system
  • Interact with top administrators at round table discussions, key note presentations, and a networking lunch

Curriculum administrators can use the report to look for gaps in coverage as well as areas where particular topics are covered too much.… Read More

Use assessment and reporting to build a process for making cultural change

Everyone has probably witnessed disrespectful or disruptive behavior in the workplace at some point in their careers. Institutionally, however, we usually turn our heads and ignore the problem. In a survey quoted by A. Lorris Betz in his Leadership Plenary talk at this year’s AAMC Conference, 70% of participants indicated that they observe disruptive behavior each month, and 11% said they observe it every day.

Bad behavior is a symptom of a larger cultural disease. With a culture of disrespect where disruptive behavior is tolerated, a viscous cycle exists where the resulting hostile work environments lead to more bad behavior, dissatisfied patients, and an increase in malpractice suits.… Read More
