Abstract [en]

Evaluation as dialogue between stakeholders - a tool for learning and content development of medical education

One important basis for content development of professional study programmes is the reception of graduated student qualifications. Normally there is no feed back from the field until years after student graduation. This presentation describes an evaluation strategy designed to support an ongoing reconstruction of a medical education programme trough continuous dialogue with stakeholders about the criteria of excellent medical education.

Since the premises of medical education are influenced by several stakeholders (not only faculty, physicians and students) the evaluation strategy includes ten different stakeholders. Initially we asked the stakeholders what they wanted to know about the medical training.

We received 117 challenging and sometimes unexpected questions. Receiving those questions generated a platform of learning. We realized that there were aspects to consider that we hadn’t thought of. The stakeholders were informed about the questions received and also the multi-method strategy that was decided for answering the crucial ones.

So far the question bank has been used in workshops with faculty, in focus group evaluation with senior students and in course and stage evaluations with both faculty and students. New information is communicated to the stakeholders and new questions for learning and educational development are generated.
