Elentra is now available to record EPAs for our trainees. 

Tips for using the Entrustment Rating Scale

Think of “Entrustment” as being comfortable letting the resident do “x”  on his/her own, with minimal faculty/fellow supervision or input.

ENTRUSTMENT: The resident can do the assigned task at the level expected for their stage of training without requiring guidance or supervision. [Categories: Autonomy or Excellence]

As the Faculty Assessor: 

  • Complete the Global Rating Scale at the bottom of the Elentra app
  • Support your impression by including suitable comments
  • You do not need to check-off the specific milestones on the EPA checklist 

 NOT YET ENTRUSTABLE: The resident requires specific supervision or guidance to complete the task. [Categories: Intervention, Direction or Support]

As the Faculty Assessor: 

  • Milestones should be used to help identify which components of the activity are done well and which require further learning
  • Review the milestones with the resident; and
  • Indicate the level of performance on the milestone rating scale
  • Complete the Global Rating scale at the bottom of the Elentra app
  • Include specific comments to facilitate learning

  • Consider…
  • I suggest…
  • Had you thought about…
