Workshop: Learning Outcomes and Entrustable Professional Activities (EPA)

Date/Time
21 Mar, Wednesday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue
NUS, Tahir Foundation Building (MD1), Level 3, Multi-Purpose Hall 1
Description

Today, an outcome-based education (OBE) model is strongly advocated for the design and delivery of 21st century health professional curriculum: the professional competencies required for future practice are defined in terms of the intended learning outcomes (i.e. the knowledge, skills, attitudes) formulated from and aligned to the end-product capability (i.e. the desired attributes of the end-product) identified. Learners need to provide evidence of having acquired the desired professional competencies by passing examinations which use assessment tools (e.g. MEQs, OSCEs) designed for such a purpose.

However, in the clinical setting (i.e. in the work environment), it is recommended that learners need to show evidence that they have acquired desired professional competencies by independently performing a given set of professional tasks, after a period of learning under supervision. Such ‘professional tasks’ performed by the learner independently are referred to as the ‘Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs). Workplace-based assessments tools (e.g. Mini-CEX, DOPS) should be used for assessing EPAs.

Workshop: Teaching & Learning Strategies for Healthcare Professionals in the New Millennium

Date/Time
22 Mar, Thursday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue
NUS, Tahir Foundation Building (MD1), Level 3, Multi-Purpose Hall 1
Description

The education of medical / healthcare professionals today must be able to meet the challenges, demands and expectations of their patients in the 21st century. Educational paradigms have changed significantly over the years to match the requirements of a “cognitive age” in a globalised, knowledge-based economy, and also be consistent with current understanding of how people learn. The changing educational paradigms will impact strongly on the educational preparation of medical / healthcare professionals.

Workshop: Competency Based Medical / Health Professional Education - Providing Effective Feedback to Enhance Learning

Date/Time
23 Apr, Monday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue
NUS, Centre for Translational Medicine (MD6), Level 1, #01-01B
Description

The ability to provide and receive feedback is important in the current learning context to improve the educational setting as well as to monitor the progress of trainees and trainers. If done properly, feedback will have a transformative effect on the person as well as the practice environment. It is therefore imperative that one is trained in giving both positive and negative feedback skillfully. The workshop will focus on feedback techniques and discuss on how to develop good practices as well as identify bad practices. Training will be in small groups and will focus on current learning environments of undergraduate and postgraduate settings.
