CBME in Canadian Neurology Residency Training Programs

Insights from the first year of Competency Based Medical Education (CBME) implementation across Canadian neurology training programs.

By collecting survey data we hope to explore whether CBME is being implemented in Neurology the way it was intended, to understand the variability and impact in CBME implementation among programs, to identify benefits and pitfalls to residency training, and to help inform the iterative process of CBME implementation.  

If you are a neurologist who supervises resident trainees or are a CBME resident in a Canadian Neurology Residency Training Program, we invite you to complete an online survey about your CBME experience.

This survey is being conducted by Dr. Anita Florendo-Cumbermack (Western University). Questions:

International Covid Neurology Survey

Researchers with the Global Covid Neurology Survey are calling on clinicians to help them better understand how neurological complications of COVID-19 are diagnosed around the world.

The project is being led by the University of Liverpool with support from World Health Organization (WHO) and World Federation of Neurology.

“We need clinicians around the world to share their experiences of how they diagnose neurological and neuropsychiatric syndromes and perceive their association with COVID-19,” said Dr Arina Tamborska, NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow in Neurology at the University of Liverpool. “Your responses will play a role in the validation of a prospective WHO clinical record form which will then be made openly available to everyone following the study’s completion.”

The survey will take up to 30 minutes to complete and involves questions about your clinical experience and several short case scenarios, describing patients with neurological complications as a result of COVID-19.

Participants will also be named as a collaborator in any publications arising from the survey.

Dr Benedict Michael, Senior Clinician Scientist Fellow at the University of Liverpool, added:  “Whether you are a neurologist or any other healthcare professional involved in the care of COVID-19 patients, your help would be greatly appreciated with this study which we hope will lead to better treatments and outcomes for patients.”
