RUIZ-MORAL, R.  and  GRUPO DE IMPLEMENTACION DEL PORTAFOLIO DEL RESIDENTE EN LA UNIDAD DOCENTE DE MEDICINA DE FAMILIA DE CORDOBA. Trainers and trainees opinions after the pilot implementation of a formative evaluation: the new portfolio of the Spanish Family Medicine Resident. Educ. méd. [online]. 2008, vol.11, n.3, pp.147-155. ISSN 1575-1813.

Introduction. The Spanish Family Medicine National Joint Commission is proposing a new trainee evaluation system type portfolio. In Spain, there is not previous experience that can guide about how this kind of formative assessment can be developed and we do not known about its usefulness in the trainees education. Materials and methods. Qualitative study with structured surveys carried out in a Provincial Family Medicine Teaching Unit. Along 9 months, 28 trainers and 36 trainees carried out a formative assessment on diverse competencies areas by means of specific tasks during their rotation in the Health Centres. Trainers and trainees filled an ad hoc survey and their comments on contents, format and possible implementation strategies were coded by two researchers in recurrent themes, explanations and concepts. Results. Thirty three surveys were received from trainees, 19 trainers made comments and 21 gave 67 evaluation reports (average: 3 by trainer). Both considered that the new method could be useful for reflecting on the clinical practice, for knowing better the own competencies and for strength the trainer-trainee relationship, especially if some suggestions related with its format and the way this is implemented are being in mind for the future. Conclusions. The new proposal of portfolio for family medicine trainees in this version or including some modifications can be well accepted and can be an useful tool for their formative evaluation.
