Overview

About the Product

The Competency Based Fieldwork Evaluation for Occupational Therapists (CBFE) is a measure designed for faculty of fieldwork courses responsible for deciding methods of student evaluation. The CBFE allows therapists and students to evaluate the fieldwork experience in a variety of settings. It provides faculty members with a cumulative record of student competency acquisitions ensuring readiness for entry to practice. The CBFE captures current thinking in evaluation by basing student assessment on seven competency areas rather than a long list of skills. The competencies include: practice knowledge, clinical reasoning, facilitating change, professional interactions, communication, professional development, and performance management. The package contains a manual and two 16-page evaluation forms.
