As always, please continue to encourage your faculty to:

  1. Complete 1 (maybe 2) EPA tools during a shift, guided by a 2-3 minutes of direct observation of the resident at some point of the patient interaction. 

  2. Be honest in their entrustments. - EPAs are low stakes and multiple. We expect many EPAs will not be entrusted especially early on in a stage.

  3. Anchor the EPA entrustment scale on the task on hand. EPA’s are not global assessments. e.g. by choosing autonomous on an EPA 1 on a specific day does not mean they are now fully autonomous in every EPA 1.

There are 14 Core EPAs that have to be completed in PGY 2-4 and a few special assessments. NB: The clinical special assessments can be found in Elentra under On Demand Workflow under the Other Assessment Forms

If there is information that is not captured in the EPAs, the faculty can use Notes to File (which can be located under ‘My assessments’-‘Start Assessment’- and then below ‘assessment tools tab’ ) to provide information to the program. This can be done confidentially. 

All information above will also be available on our EM CBD website:
