Workplace Based-Assessments (WBA). 

Access the roster here. 



1. WBA to be voluntary. We will continue with the rostered consultant WBA times of 1.30pm-2.30pm every day EXCEPT WEDNESDAY as teaching finishes at 2pm

It is up to the individual reg to look at the roster and pre- book the consultant rostered for WBA for the day.  This must be done at least 48 hours in advance.

2. The registrar will come in his/ her own time. First come first served basis. If the consultant is not contacted 24 hours before hand, he/ she can assume there will be no WBA required.

We foresee that this will apply for CBDs and mini CEXs. Mini CEX can also be done in clinical time but the reg will need to pre organise with the WBA consultant for the day or ad hoc with the clinical consultant on the floor. We have suggested NOT using the clinical consultant due to clinical workload.

Shift report and DOPs are done in clinical time for both consultant and reg and are opportunistic (as per current).

3. Non ACEM trainee registrars are not required to complete WBAs, but are encouraged to do so.

It is strongly encouraged whenever possible that a DOPS be performed opportunistically (can be performed by any EP).   See the full list of procedures and expected mastery levels in the ACEM framework (pg 76-80).

3 cases should be pre-selected and sent to the Assessor before a Case-based Discussion.
