The Objective Structured Clinical Examination as a Performance Assessment
editore: Churchill Livingstone
This book highlights the basic concepts underpinning the OSCE, its development and implementation in practice. Practical guidelines and tips are provided based on the authors' extensive experience gained over 40 years. Case studies are included to illustrate the OSCE's use in a wide range of settings and professions to assess the expected learning outcomes. The text is supplemented with personal accounts and anecdotes. Used globally in all phases of education in the different healthcare professions, the OSCE was first described by the lead author, Harden, in 1975 and it is now the gold standard for performance assessment.
