The three-day courses have been successfully conducted in 2018 and 2019 in the Netherlands, Singapore and Canada, and will be delivered in a roughly similar format at four locations at different times in 2020.

Entrustable Professional Activities or "EPAs" as they are commonly known have become an significant component of the design of competency-based education in health professions education. Many postgraduate medical programs and increasingly undergraduate medical programs worldwide are redesigning education and assessment procedures to incorporate EPAs in clinical training. Other health professions have explored the possibilities to use EPAs in their programs, such as nursing, physician assistant, veterinary medicine, midwifery, pharmacy, physical therapy and dentistry training.

Identifying suitable EPAs and finding consensus, adapting the objectives and programs of training, implementing new routines for education in the workplace, using entrustment decision making as an assessment approach, and faculty development to get everyone on board all require a deep understanding of the EPA concepts and skills and a toolkit of workshops and presentations, to be used at local schools and institutions.
