Community Child Health Entrustable Professional Activities Pilot

Entrustable Professional Activities or EPAs are a relatively recent innovation in medical education, with the potential to transform our training programs. They are the essential work activities that supervisors need to be able to entrust their trainees to carry out.

The College invited interested Community Child Health supervisors and trainees to participate in a pilot of EPAs in the first six months of the 2015 training year.  The pilot aimed to explore the usefulness of EPAs in terms of both curricula design and workplace application for a College training program.

For more information including the pilot handbook and evaluation report, please visit the homepage for the pilot of Entrustable Professional Activities in Community Child Health
