As part of the curriculum review process it was recognised that there was a need to formally assess Specialty Registrars ability to integrate and apply competencies for practice. As such Key Area 10: Integration and Application of Competences for Consultant Practice, was introduced with the following aim:

“To be able to demonstrate the consistent use of sound judgment to select from a range of advanced public health expertise and skills, and to use them effectively, working at senior organisational levels, to deliver improved population health in complex and unpredictable environments.”

It is envisaged that a KA 10 formative assessment panel will support the Educational Supervisor and Registrar in determining progress in KA 10 Learning Outcomes and help to identify any developmental needs in this Key Area.

You will be invited for a KA10 formative assessment panel approximately 12 months before your CCT date.
