Competency-based medical education (CBME) is the new gold standard to achieve more effective and efficient medical care: Constant learning is important for every professional. Though broadly agreed upon, living CBME in the daily routine posed substantial challenges - until now, thanks to our apps preparedEPA and prepared360.
We started working with EPAs using preparedEPA. Our trainees love the app for their training and use it regularly. Its daily use has significantly improved our feedback culture. Thanks to the app's intuitive, self-explanatory functionality, no training is required, and acceptance among employees is very high.
I am really impressed by the possibilities of prepared to document EPA-based assessment!
Thank you very much, have just done the first supervision without problems. Amazing for me, shortly before my retirement to experience also in this field the progress of the communicative applications.
preparedEPA allows me to include good and targeted feedback into the daily work routine. As specific activities can be assessed, it often takes less than 5 minutes to discuss several EPAs with the supervisor. With this app, I can now get focused teaching, tailored to specific activities, and I can observe how my skills develop over time.
We love our profession. We learn and teach every day. To make sure everything is quick, fun, sustainable and well documented, we use preparedEPA for our assessments. Learning progress is well documented to enable tailored education. This is how learning and teaching in medicine works today!
I used preparedEPA this week-end with one of the chefs de clinique during a laparoscopic cholecystectomy. It was very easy to use and helpful for the feedback.
The preparedEPA app is a training lifesaver. Self-explanatory, intuitive, uncomplicated to use and every assessment is done quickly. It provides information about one's own current development status at any time and a super overview of where there are deficits or need to catch up. [...] With the preparedEPA app, a structured assessment or feedback is possible at any time, I repeat: any time, and can be done within a minute or twenty - depending on how much time and capacity you and your supervisor have. I am delighted with it. The app makes being a resident infinitely easier. Never, never, never again without it!
The preparedEPA app motivates me anew to expand my own skill catalog in a cozy way during every procedure. Due to the very intuitive use and clear visualization, each and every supervisor can get an easy and transparent insight into my skills in the team. The use of the app seriously revolutionizes postgraduate medical education and daily clinical practice.
As a senior physician at the Ear, Nose and Throat Clinic of the University Hospital Zurich, the training of junior medical staff is particularly close to my heart. Last year, I was named "Teacher of the Year" by the residents of the Swiss Society of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology (SGORL). The preparedEPA-App played a big part in this. It has truly revolutionized my teaching. [...] On the one hand, this supports me in making my teaching even more individual, and on the other hand, it makes it easier for me to plan the deployment of the team members. [...] I can no longer imagine teaching without this excellent tool.
