Better use of existing assessment methods and new innovative tools are needed to assess the kind of competencies health professional students will need to adapt to a “new professionalism” that is transdisciplinary and is focused on the triple aim of improved patient care and experience, improved population health and reduced costs. In an era of evolving technology and changing health and health care environments, creative thinking is needed to consider assessment methods and tools that have an impact, are affordable, are easily integrated into education, and assess competencies at micro, meso and macro levels (individual, team, organization). The impact could be measured by: (1) improvements in population health outcomes; (2) better patient care; (3) more inter-professional collaboration/understanding; and (4) maximum value of services at lower costs.
Participate so that you can assure that “sex and gender” and the SGWHC are given their due consideration as integral to the professional health education discussion.
