International Best Practices for Evaluation in the Health Professions (Paperback)William Mcgaghie (author)
Paperback 400 Pages
This unique text presents a comprehensive narrative on why and how health professions students need to be evaluated for practice in the 21st century. It systematically addresses current evaluation best practices in the health professions to identify today's evaluation benchmarks, reveal evaluation limits, address improvement pathways, and map a research agenda to boost future evaluation practices. Advancements in information and communication technology, bioscience and behavioral research, and worldwide travel are dissolving barriers that have separated professions, countries, and cultures for centuries. This book both celebrates these achievements and carefully considers next steps. It recognizes the huge improvements made in evaluation practices within the health professions over the past 40 years but asks for more - calling for added reform and better understanding of current practice from different social, cultural, and educational perspectives. International Best Practices for Evaluation in the Health Professions values crossprofessional programs that span boundaries and acknowledge the authority of the future rather than historical baggage. Educators worldwide will be enlightened and inspired by its straightforward, compelling narrative.

'In Chapter 6 entitled 'Clinical Competence Assessment' the authors present an interesting overview of objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) and multiple choice questions (MCQ). This discussion can be applied across the health professions and is relevant to assessments within midwifery curricula. Furthermore, Chapter 10 'Evaluating outcomes in continuing education and training' presents some interesting discussion on the use of educational outcomes for the development and assessment of continuing professional education.'
