Defining the Future of Patient-Focused Assessment: Resident Sensitive Quality Measures and EPAs
This presentation will begin by discussing literature that illuminates the seemingly common experience of training outcomes not preparing graduates to be able to provide the care than patients need and deserve. With this foundation, patient-focused approaches to assessment will be argued as a way forward, positing that the future of high quality care depends on better physician performance assessment. Two prevailing patient-focused assessment approaches will be discussed: resident sensitive quality measures (RSQMs) and entrustable professional activities. Literature on the development and initial implementation of RSQMs will be discussed.

He co-directs the CCHMC Education Research Unit and Education Research Scholars Program. A former residency program leader, Dr. Schumacher currently spends most of his time conducting medical education research in the area of competency-based medical education. Consistent with this focus, Dr. Schumacher’s scholarly vision is to define and ensure physician entrustment based on meaningful performance assessment that results in high quality care that matters for patients.
