Emergency Medicine reveals attitudes towards Competence by Design
Competence by Design (CBD) is the biggest change in medical education that many of us have seen in our careers. What we have learned about our training system – the gaps, challenges, and areas of improvement to meet today’s needs – are meant to come together under the innovation of CBD. Although ultimately designed to improve patient care, the goals of CBD are about implementing best practices and principles identified in medical training in recent decades.
But how is Emergency Medicine reacting to the changes?
The Canadian Journal of Emergency Medicine invited commentary from EM docs Andrew K. Hall, Rob Woods, and Jason R. Frank to explore current reactions.
