Practice Ready Assessment - British Columbia (PRA-BC)
We coordinate and deliver a two-day Assessor Training Workshop to orient and support physicians who serve as assessors of PRA-BC candidates in the 12-week Clinical Field Assessment (CFA).
During these two days, we provide information, resources and support necessary to make the CFA period less stressful and more rewarding. As of Fall 2020, we are delivering this workshop virtually.
September 23 - 24, 2022 (Fri-Sat)
Our two-day workshop covers:
- Expectations of PRA-BC assessors and candidates
- Cultural awareness and sensitivity
- Use of standardized practice-assessment tools (Field Note, Mini-CEX, etc.)
- Delivering feedback
- Challenging conversations
- Modeling patient-centred care
- And much more...
