As medical schools and postgraduate programs around the world implement Entrustable professional activities (EPAs) to focus assessment, front line teachers need to be prepared to incorporate this assessment framework in their daily work with learners.  As supervisors, clinical teachers are required to gather data about learners' abilities so that they can make well-informed decisions about the level of supervision their learners need to safely perform various clinical care tasks.  This session will engage participants in an exploration of Entrustment-Based Discussion (EBD) as a tool for "data-gathering" and evaluation of potential risks related to decisions to grant learners more responsibility.
