Many clinicians support the clinical education of student learners and mentor newly-graduated clinicians with entry-to-practice competencies. Understanding the new competency-based entry-to-practice Canadian landscape and resultant changes in assessment of learners is thus imperative. This workshop provides an exploration of key features and concepts related to the competency-based education and assessment for learning. The session will augment brief didactic presentations with interactive discussion and reflection. Participants will apply competency-based assessment principles using examples from the new Canadian Assessment of Clinical Competence, which will then enable them to apply these concepts and strategies in their own contexts.
