Workplace-based assessments, such as DOPS (Direct Observation of Procedural/Practical Skills), are used to assess how an individual performs in the authentic working environment and are well validated as an assessment method in healthcare and other settings.
You can find LASA's open-access library of DOPS and instructions on how to use them here.
LASA CPD SCHEME
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a prerequisite for many professional medical and scientific disciplines but less common for those involved in laboratory animal work.
Revision of Directive 86/609EEC requires that persons “are adequately educated, competent and continuously trained” (Article 23A).
The scheme is available FREE to LASA members. Please contact the Secretariat for more information
