Non-Clinical Rotations

Goals, Objectives and Evaluation Tools and Resources

The drug distribution, medication management, management, clinical leadership, toxicology, academic detailing, critical appraisal and antimicrobial stewardship rotations will each use separate ITERs to evaluate the resident.  The criteria used to evaluate the resident have been taken directly from the rotation objectives for each rotation.  These rotation objectives are based on the relevant Residency Program Competencies listed in the Canadian Pharmacy Residency Board Accreditation Standards 2010

  • Drug Distribution Rotation ITER [click to view Form]
    This ITER will be used to evaluate the resident at the end of the drug distribution rotation.  The evaluation criteria are taken directly from the rotation objectives for the drug distribution rotation. 
  • Medication Management Rotation ITER [click to view Form]
    This ITER will be used to evaluate the resident at the end of the medication management rotation.  The evaluation criteria are taken directly from the rotation objectives for the medication management rotation.  
  • Management Rotation ITER [click to view Form]
    This ITER will be used to evaluate the resident at the end the of the management rotation.  The evaluation criteria are taken directly from the rotation objectives for the management rotation. 
  • Clinical Leadership Rotation ITER [click to view Form]
    This ITER will be used to evaluate the resident at the end of the clinical leadership rotation.  The evaluation criteria are taken directly from the rotation objectives for the clinical leadership rotation.

  • Antimicrobial Stewardship Rotation ITER [click to view Form]
    This ITER will be used to evaluate the resident at the end of the antimicrobial stewardship rotation.  The evaluation criteria are taken directly from the rotation objectives for the antimicrobial stewardship rotation.

Rationale for Evaluation Criteria

The purpose of the ITER (In-Training Evaluation of Resident) is to assess the resident’s ability at meeting the objectives of the rotation.  As such, the criteria that will be used to evaluate the resident for each rotation have been taken directly from the rotation objectives.  These rotation objectives, in most cases, have been taken directly from the Residency Program Competencies listed in the Canadian Pharmacy Residency Board Accreditation Standards 2010.  For each evaluation, the preceptor will evaluate the resident as to whether they met the evaluation criteria according to the following scale:

  • “Did not meet Expected Level of Performance” or
  • “Met Expected Level of Performance” or
  • “Exceeded Expected Level of Performance”       

What is the “Expected Level of Performance”?

The preceptor will determine whether the resident has met the “expected level of performance” for each required competency.  Preceptors who are unsure of how to evaluate the resident on a particular criterion are encouraged to discuss this with the Program Coordinator.

IH Program Policy

For all non-clinical rotation evaluations, the “expected level of the performance” is the level of performance expected of the resident based on the learning objectives and activities of the rotation, as well as the realities of the practice area, as determined by the preceptor.  As a guide, preceptors can refer to the criteria for for “Did not Meet Expected Level of Performance” or “Met Expected Level of Performance” or “Exceeded Expected Level of Performance” found in the CPRB Levels and Ranges Document August 2009 when evaluating the resident.  Preceptors are encouraged to contact the Program Coordinator with any questions or concerns regarding the evaluation of the resident.  The criteria for the levels of performance, as outlined in the CPRB Levels and Ranges Document are outlined below:

3.2 Manage and Improve Medication Use Systems

Standard: The resident shall demonstrate a working knowledge of medication use system(s), as well as pharmacy and other provider roles within the system, in order to manage and improve medication use for individual patients and groups of patients. 

 

3.3 Exercise Leadership

Standard: The resident shall apply leadership and management skills to contribute to the goals of the program, department, organization and profession.

 

3.4 Exhibit Ability to Manage One's Own Practice of Pharmacy

Standard: The resident shall apply skill in the management of his/her own practice of pharmacy, to advance his/her own learning, to advance patient care, and to contribute to the goals of the program, department, organization and profession.

3.5 Provide Medication- and Practice-Related Education

Standard: The resident shall effectively respond to medication- and practice-related questions, and educate others.

3.6 Demonstrate Project Management Skills

Standard: The resident shall use effective project management skills to undertake, conduct and successfully complete a project related to pharmacy practice.
