Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) provide a framework of expectations to bridge the gap between medical students and residency training. EPAs are assessed while students are in real-world clinical settings and used by students and administration alike to determine areas of focus.
The best way to get accurate and frequent EPA data tied back to students is to make the process easy. With eMedley’s EPAs, the student just hands the phone or tablet to their preceptor. In a few quick taps and a verification signature the EPA is submitted. Administrators then have the data available at a student, EPA, or cohort level.
Ensure that students are qualified for practice with eMedley’s EPA module. Mobile evaluations are quick and easy with powerful reporting.
Step 1: Learner Completes an Activity
When a learner performs and EPA, they should ensure that a preceptor is present to observe the activity.
Step 2: Create a New EPA
When learners complete an activity, they will create a new EPA in the eMedley mobile app and enter information such as the date an activity was completed and the name of their preceptor.
Step 3: Preceptors Evaluate Learners
Preceptors are asked to rate the learner’s ability to perform the activity and their trustworthiness using a variety of competency scales.
Step 4: Final Comments
Preceptors can provide feedback, dictate their comments, and sign for approval of the EPA.
Graphical EPA Overview
The optional comprehensive EPA dashboard provides detailed EPA data at a glance.
The Dashboard Analysis shows detailed data about students and their completed EPAs, including scores and scales.
The eMedley EPA Ad-Hoc Report breaks down exportable information pertaining to students, observers, rotations, clinical sites, and more.
This solution is customized per implementation based on the unique needs of each program/University. Our implementation team will work closely with the program to identify the specific requirements to ensure that the configuration of this functionality is as efficient and cost effective as possible.
