Choosing Wisely

As members may be aware, the College is involved in Choosing Wisely Australia, a campaign led by Australia’s medical colleges and professional societies and facilitated by NPS MedicineWise to improve resource utilisation in health care.  Following consultation, the College has identified those practices that warrant scrutiny and will be providing five recommendations of tests, treatments and procedures that clinicians and consumers should question.  This email address is being protected from spambots.

I am interested in assessing Workplace Based Assessments for the trainees undertaking the Certificate of Women’s Health, Diploma and Diploma Advanced trainees. How can I formalize this process?

If you are approached by a trainee to participate in a Workplace Based Assessment you need to be approved by the trainee's Training Supervisor prior to undertaking the activity. For Diploma and Diploma Advanced trainees your qualifications must be equal to, or above, that of the trainee's current training program i.e., you must hold the Diploma or above to conduct the assessment for a candidate who is in the Diploma Training Program or hold the Diploma Advanced or above to conduct the assessment for a candidate who is in the Diploma Advanced Training Program. Only the designated Training Mentor can conduct Workplace Based Assessments for their Certificate of Women's Health trainees.

Training Supervisors will have a list of approved Assessors (and the qualification level at which they can conduct Workplace Based Assessments), which will be updated each calendar year.
