Assessments

Arrow In this section

Workplace Based Assessments (WPBAs): (on Kaizen)
DOPS (Directly Observed Procedural Skills)
Mini-IPX (Mini-Imaging Interpretation Exercise)

Both assessments are available on Kaizen and can be sent to a trainer to complete. Assessments should be distributed throughout the training period. It is important to demonstrate progress and it is expected that more supervision will be required at the start of the fellowship.

Breast-Specific Modality Report (BSMR): (attached: to be added to the appropriate subfolder in the library section of the Kaizen e-portfolio)
The BSMR is another assessment tool to help a trainer record progress following a number of sessions together. For example, if the Fellow is performing US VABs with the same trainer for a block, then that trainer should complete a BSMR to summarise their progress.

Multidisciplinary Meeting (MDM): (on Kaizen)
The MDM assessment should be completed by a trainer, at least one per block. This will give the Fellow valuable experience in preparing and presenting a MDM.

Audit/Quality Improvement Project: (on Kaizen)
As part of clinical governance, it is important for the Fellow to produce an audit/QIP during their fellowship. This should be documented using the appropriate Audit/QIP assessment form on Kaizen.

Teaching: (on Kaizen)
As part of their training it is important that the Fellow demonstrates how they have used to their skills to teach others. Feedback should be obtained from the learners, and from a trainer who has supervised/been involved in this session.

Reflection: (on Kaizen)
Reflection is a valuable part of how one learns, and it is important to continue to provide evidence of this. This evidence needs to be gathered throughout the year and not clustered at the end. The reflection needs to be of good quality and demonstrate learning from the event.

Multi Source Feedback (MSF): (on Kaizen)
Working with the Multidisciplinary Team is an essential part of the work of a breast radiologist. Getting feedback from the wider team and reflecting on it, is a very important part of this training. This will form an essential part of revalidation going forward as a consultant.

Educational Supervisor’s Report: (on Kaizen)
This provides a summary of what has been achieved for a particular block.

End of year Structured Report: (on Kaizen)
This is a summary document covering the entire year’s training. The Educational Supervisor will complete the checklist with the Fellow at the same time. Both these documents form the basis for the NBIA panel review.
