Workplace-based assessment - Liverpool

Assessment of the clinical performance of doctors has become an important issue, both among patients and within the profession, following the redesign of specialist training. Methods to assess performance, in an objective, valid and reliable way, have been introduced to address these issues.

This workshop provides an opportunity for participants to gain an understanding of a range of assessment methods and to develop confidence in using them to assess competence and performance more effectively.

Content relevant and good examples and video cases. Useful having a clinical facilitator to put into practical context.
