Can children contribute to the formal assessment of medical students' paediatric clinical skills?
What is it about?
We showed that children can make a useful contribution to the assessment of medical students' paediatric clinical skills, discussed some of the pros and cons, and concluded that children can and should be involved.
Why is it important?
The UK Department of Health published a report in 2012 entitled “No decision about me, without me”, reflecting increasing recognition that children should have a say in matters that affect them. This paper provides a basis on which to include the child’s voice within the assessment process in medical education.
