P1 : WPBA and EPA: moving away from classroom assessment
   Workplace-based assessment (WPBA) and EPA (Entrustable Professional Activities) are increasingly used in medical schools in both undergraduate and postgraduate training. However, many teachers are still confused about the paradigm shift that has moved the focus of the assessment from a formal examination in the classroom or simulated settings to an authentic real-life practice. In this plenary session, leaders in WPBA and EPA have been invited to clarify the key concepts of this group of authentic assessment approach and how to make an entrustment decision.
