This online resource will introduce you to the concept of the Competence Committee, and provides several examples how those committees are being utilized across McMaster.
As per the Royal College: “With Competence by Design (CBD), we introduce the important concept of a competence committee. The competence committee makes decisions and recommendations using highly integrative data from multiple EPA and milestone observations, as well as feedback from clinical practice. A competence committee allows for an informed group decision-making process where patterns of performance can be collated to reveal a broad picture of a resident’s progression toward competence.”
