Proctoring: Assess Practitioner Competence

Your guide to building an effective proctoring program!

Even as regulators and the public demand more verification of physician competence, physicians have less time—and are less willing—to perform competence assessments and undergo monitoring. With this in mind, medical staffs must develop proctoring and precepting plans that are effective and efficient. Proctoring: Assess Practitioner Competence outlines the steps involved in proctoring, best methods for proctoring, and how to complete assessments. Author Todd Sagin, MD, JD, will help physician leaders and MSPs develop a proctoring program that physicians support.

This guide contains sample forms and checklists that medical staffs can use to conduct proctoring. MSPs and physician leaders will also find answers to common medical staff questions, such as the difference between proctoring and precepting, how ongoing professional practice evaluation (OPPE) and focused professional practice evaluation (FPPE) relate to proctoring, and how proctoring differs from peer review.
