Identification of Educational Milestones and Entrustable Professional Activities for Day One Prescribing Competence
The purpose of this workshop will be to identify Entrustable Professional Activities and Educational Milestones for Day One Prescribing Competence
High-level Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) and Educational Milestones (EMs) have been published for multiple health professions. Discipline-specific EPAs and EMs are less established. The purpose of this workshop will be to identify EPAs and EMs for new graduate Day One prescribing competence. The focus will be on veterinary education, however the workshop will be relevant to other healthcare disciplines with prescribing knowledge and skills development within the curriculum.
The workshop will consist of parallel in-person (at University of Surrey, UK) and online streams. Attendance is limited to 36 for each stream. The workshop is aimed at educators, pharmacologists and practitioners, but is open to anybody with experience in the education of new prescribers. Guest speakers include:
- Professor Clare Guilding (Newcastle University, UK), Chair of the International Union of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology (IUPHAR) Education Section
- Professor Arend Werners (St George’s University, Grenada), President of the European College of Veterinary Pharmacology and Toxicology
- Member of the Council on Outcomes-based Veterinary Education (COVE) – to be confirmed
- Dr Helen Hull (University of Portsmouth), Programme Lead (Pharmacy Education)
Attendees are invited to share their work in the area of prescribing competence. If you would like to submit an abstract for e-poster presentation at the workshop (optional), please complete the ‘Submit an Abstract’ tab as well as the 'registration' tab.
The organiser is required to publish summary results from this workshop on the University of Surrey Institute of Advanced Studies’ website after the event and plans to disseminate results elsewhere (e.g. at conferences and in educational and/or scientific journals). Attendees will be asked to consent to this prior to the workshop. Please contact the organiser prior to registration if you have any questions regarding this.
