In this session we will discuss the Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) for family physicians as developed by the Family Medicine for America’s Health Board of Directors, and compare and contrast them with the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Family Medicine Milestones, with a focus on how these two frameworks complement each other as we all seek to have robust competency-based evaluations of our resident physicians. We will then describe methods of converting responses gathered from EPA-based evaluations into Milestones-based assessment data that supports the Clinical Competency Committee’s Semi-Annual Evaluations, including a demonstration of how our evaluations team has incorporated this into our electronic evaluation system (New Innovations).
Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:
Compare and contrast the EPAs for family physicians with the ACGME Family Medicine Milestones.
Construct an evaluation system that obtains Milestones data from EPA-based evaluations.
Initiate the process of collecting Milestone and EPA data into an electronic evaluation system to support an efficient CCC.#Evaluations #STFMAnnualSpringConference #EntrustableProfessionalActivities #Milestones #2017
