Title:
A patient-centred approach to defining and assessing interviewing competency.
Authors:

Abstract:
The inclusion of communication skills as a core competency in health care curricula, has led to the need to define adequacy in this area. Developments in the field of interview analysis have meant that robust and objective ways of assessing interview behaviours are now available; however, these systems in themselves do not provide a model for assessing competency. As adequacy in interviewing is contextually driven, this paper discusses the potential of using patient centeredness to address the issue. It suggests two ways in which patient centeredness may be operationally defined, permitting data available from current rating systems, and from a new system shortly to be available, to be used to assess interviewing competency.
