Coaching to Competence

As part of Competence by Design (CBD), there is an important role for coaching in resident learning and progression. It takes skill to coach someone effectively, which is why a group of clinician educators have developed the “Coaching to Competence” online learning modules.

The CBD Coaching Model uses assessment as a learning tool, not just an evaluation method. Coaching in the Moment is part of the model that links to RX-OCR step-by-step process. It requires clinicians to establish Rapport and set eXpectations with their residents, Observe the residents doing their daily work, provide Coaching feedback, and Record the encounter.

Coaching to Competence” consists of five interactive activities that allow anyone who teaches residents to practice applying the RX-OCR coaching process. The activities are meant to help you identify gaps in skills and knowledge related to coaching.
