The amendments that were made to the WPBA tools ensured that they are better equipped to fulfil the purpose of aiding and assessing training.
Before looking at the specific changes that were made, it is important to emphasise what has not changed.
What has not changed
- The tools themselves have not changed, including:
- their names
- their clinical context.
- The ARCP requirements for WPBA encounters in relation to the Training Matrix are also largely unchanged.
So, what has changed?
- The way in which existing WPBA encounters are categorised
- The forms on which these encounters are documented.
REMEMBER! The changes that have been made to the WPBA tools ensure that the educational objectives of these tools are achieved.
