Seven Reasons to Store EPAs Digitally

Posted by Enda Griffin on 05-Oct-2018 16:30:53

Competency-Based Medical Education (CBME) is changing the delivery and assessment of medical education in healthcare institutions around the world. CBME is outcome-based education, focusing on what is attained in terms of knowledge, skill, behaviour and attitude. This brings a wider focus to education, not just what is learned from the actual teaching process.

Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) are an effective measuring tool for these competencies. An EPA is a core unit of professional practice which can be entrusted to a trainee as soon as they have demonstrated the competence to conduct the task without supervision. Qpercom developed an EPA Management System, Entrust, to provide a digital solution for storing and managing EPAs. An accompanying work-based assessment app measures the trainee feedback, to complete the feedback loop between trainer and trainee. 

But what are the benefits of storing and accessing these EPAs digitally over paper?
