Development of ELP Reactor Panels

Jan 22, 2020

The Outcome Strategy Group submitted the following proposal which was adopted by the Education Leadership Partnership (ELP):

To develop a reactor panel that will be utilized to provide feedback to specific questions that arise during the work of both the Domains of Competence and Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) panel groups. 

The makeup of the reactor panel is intentional, as it brings in many stakeholder groups who can provide much needed feedback.  A total of 197 panel members is being proposed.  (This number is higher than the approximate 100 individuals who served on the reactor panels for the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) when they developed their EPAs for undergraduate medical education.  Given the number of education programs in physical therapy, and the varied stakeholder groups engaged in physical therapy education along the learner continuums, we believe this size reactor panel is appropriate.)

ACAPT will nominate 10 Program Directors and 10 Directors of Clinical Education that they feel would lend to this CBE discussion.

Interested in participating?  Please send your CV and a brief explanation outlining your interest in service to acapt@apta.org by no later than February 3, 2020.

Below is the full list of proposed participants: 

  1. Have each regional consortia appoint: 
    1. An academic partner (23)
    2. An early career Clinical Instructor (1-5 years) (23)
    3. A 3rd Year DPT student (or student in their final year) (23)
    4. An SCCE (23)

      This approach would ensure national representation on the reactor panel.  The 92 representatives would include feedback from four unique perspectives. 

  2. APTE will nominate 10 Academic Faculty (not PDs or DCEs) that they feel would lend to this CBE discussion.  APTE will also nominate 10 clinical instructor representatives.

  3. ACAPT will nominate 10 Program Directors and 10 Directors of Clinical Education that they feel would lend to this CBE discussion.

  4. APTA will nominate 20 individuals from community partner groups (ie, sections, councils, etc.) that they feel would lend to this CBE discussion (health systems, private practice.)

  5. FSBPT will nominate 5 individuals that they feel would lend to this CBE discussion and appreciate the Federation’s perspective.

  6. ABPTFRE will nominate 5 individuals that they feel would lend to this CBE discussion and appreciate the residency and fellowship education perspective. 
  7. ABPTS will nominate 5 individuals that they feel would lend to this CBE discussion and appreciate the perspective specific to specialist certification.
     
  8. PTAESIG will nominate 5 individuals that they feel would lend to this CBE discussion and appreciate the PTA education community’s perspective.

  9. PTA Caucus will nominate 5 PTAs. 

  10. CAPTE will nominate 4 individuals that they feel would lend to this CBE discussion and appreciate the Commission’s perspective.

  11. Ten individuals from various health professions with experience in the development and implementation of some form of CBE.  This would include: medicine, nursing, pharmacy.
