Workshop
Research Based
RATIONALE: Using COPC methodology, many residency programs have developed creative ways to involve residents in community activities. Although there is a substantial literature on COPC projects, many additional programs exist that have never been published, often due to a lack of meaningful evaluation data. In this workshop, we report the findings of our literature review of COPC programs within family medicine residencies
EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES: Participants will: 1. Describe the current state of COPC programs in family medicine residencies 2. State four barriers/challenges to evaluating COPC programs 3. Apply strategies to address these barriers/challenges and strengthen the evaluation of their own COPC projects. Format, Session Activities and Time Allotment: A. Introduction, Overview and Resource Packet Distribution (5 minutes) B. Mini-lecture - Literature review, conclusions and recommendations (20 minutes) C. Small group exercise - Evaluating my COPC program (30 minutes) Using the Kirkpatrick table provided, participants will map their current COPC evaluation strategies and suggest new strategies that they have considered as a result of the workshop. Kirkpatrick's four levels of evaluation, adapted for medical education are: Level 1 - Subjects' reactions/satisfaction Level 2a - Modification of attitudes and perceptions Level 2b - Modification of knowledge and skills Level 3 - Change in behaviour Level 4a - Change in practice Level 4b - Benefits to patients/community D. Group Discussion: Reflection, lessons learned and planned changes (30 minutes) Participants will share their experiences in evaluating COPC programs, lessons learned from the workshop and their planned changes in evaluating their own pro grams E. Summary, Wrap-up and Evaluation (5 minutes) Total - 90 minutes
