Validating questionnaire process

The aim of this article is to present the Re AQ and its validation.The Re AQ consists of 20 items that assess the six core competencies identified by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).A many-facet Rasch measurement analysis was used for validating the Re AQ.Between July 2011 and June 2012, 211 evaluations were collected from residents and faculty.

In North America, it is largely based on a model developed by the North American Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), which uses six interrelated domains of competence: medical knowledge, patient care and procedural skills, professionalism, interpersonal and communication skills, practice-based learning and improvement, and Systems-Based Practice [ Indeed, the ideal processes to evaluate residents in a comprehensive manner should encompass the use of different tools to evaluate the various competences contributing to the profile of a “good pediatrician”.The remaining learning activities include formal lectures, seminars, workshops and personal studies.Residents rotate through 15 of the 25 Divisions/Services of the Department of Woman’s and Child’s Health of Padua and of the affiliated Hospitals during their first three years; rotations range in time from three to six months.Reliability processes indicated that the SQ is reliable: Cronbach’s alpha 0.94 for the global SQ and between 0.80-0.91 for the four subscales.Test-retest statistic examination revealed stability of the responses at two time points 10 weeks apart.

Furthermore, if properly planned, orchestrated and implemented, the assessment process serves to provide feedback to trainees regarding their own level of professional and cultural maturation, and it provides the faculty with feedback on the strengths and weaknesses of the overall training program.
